My Story Won an Award!

Comrade LinI just found out my short story, “The Short, Strange Life of Comrade Lin,” has won Second Prize in the 2013 National Fantasy Fan Federation Short Story Contest! The judges particularly praised its “descriptive power” and the sympathetic portrayal of Lin, even as a hardcore Maoist.

I am certainly very proud, and will have this story up for sale at all the usual locations in the next week.
