I’ve met the editors of On Spec, networked with the writers of Women of the Apocalypse, listened to the very entertaining Robert J. Sawyer give readings, shared a table of contents with Hayden Trenholm, had my story ‘From the Sea’ (On Spec) edited by Barbara Galler-Smith, and more! This year it will be difficult to pick which works I’m going to vote for. Voting directions are at the Prix Aurora site.
