I’ve Been Nominated for the Aurora Award 2011 for “Touch the Sky, They Say”

My short story “Touch the Sky, They Say,” which is available for free on AE: The Canadian Science Fiction Review, is one of five stories nominated in the Best Short Story category for the Aurora Awards. Thanks to everyone who nominated me!

What Are the Aurora Awards?

The Auroras are an annual award that recognize the best in Canadian fantasy and science fiction writing, artwork and fan activities. Past winners for Best Short Fiction include big names like Robert J. Sawyer and Peter Watts as well as my friends David Nickle, Douglas Smith and Hayden Trenholm.

This year, I have a number of friends who are also up for Auroras:

  • Hayden Trenholm (“The Burden of Fire”) and Suzanne Church (“Destiny Lives in the Tattoo’s Needle”) are also nominated in the Best Short Story category
  • Marie Bilodeau (Destiny’s Blood) and Hayden Trenholm (Stealing Home) are nominated for Best Novel
  • Sandra Kasturi (“Let the Night In”) and Helen Marshall (“Waiting for the Harrowing”), fellow ChiZine Publications staff, for best poem
  • Douglas Smith (for this short story collection Chimerascope), Diane Walton (for On Spec magazine) and Brett Alexander Savory (for co-editing Tesseracts Fourteen) for Best English Related Work
  • Erik Mohr for Best Artist
  • Sandra and Helen for best Best Fan Organizational for the Toronto SpecFic Colloquium

What Happens Now?

I’ll follow up with more information about this story and, once it’s posted, how to vote.

For now, thanks again for your support.
