I knew them when…

Hey, I’m still busy moving and doing edits on the novel. Hence the relative silence online.

That said I do want to highlight some good news. Two Writers of the Future winners from the same year as me have received Nebula nominations. Huge (and belated) congrats out to Tom and Brad.
Since they are nominated in separate categories I can hope that both of them win:
‘‘Mama, We Are Zhenya, Your Son’’, Tom Crosshill (Lightspeed 4/11)
‘‘Ray of Light’’, Brad R. Torgersen (Analog 12/11)
[See the full list of Nebula nominees]

Additionally Brad is nominated for a Hugo for the same story and the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer!!

Best of luck to both of them.

As well, Drew Karpyshyn, a writer I knew from back during my BioWare days (and successful author of several Star Wars novels) has signed a deal to have an original fantasy series published. Details here, or go here if you want to visit Drew’s website.

Very pleased for him and I can’t wait to read the novels.
