Auroras and Rhyslings

Both the Aurora and Rhysling Awards have reached the final few weeks of their nomination periods for the year. I've mentioned the Rhyslings (the Science Fiction Poetry Association's award) here already, and I'll still gladly send copies of my eligible poems to any SFPA member who wants to read them. I'll also (since I'm still behind on my own nominating) be happy to read any spec poetry published in 2009 that anyone would like me to consider.

As for the Prix Auroras, they are the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association's awards , and are open to nominations from any Canadian. Nominations are free, and can be submitted online, with a deadline of Feb. 15th, or by snailmail, postmarked by Feb. 5th.

For the first time in a long time I have not only poetry eligible for the Aurora, but three stories of which I'm more than a bit fond. Two of those are available to be read online, "The Ghost of Onions," in the July 20th issue of Strange Horizons, and "The One With the Waggly Tail," in the March 6th Mindflights.

The third story, perhaps my favorite of the three, "Outside These Walls," came out this past summer in the Escape Clause anthology from InkOinkArt. If anyone would like to read it, either for Aurora consideration, or just out of curiosity, please let me know and I'll email a copy.
