Asimov’s Science Fiction hold reader polls each year – where readers get the chance to vote for their favorite story from the past year’s issues.
I’m honored that my story “Crimson Birds of Small Miracles” is a finalist in the short story category. Amazed really.
The full list of finalists, in all categories is on the Asimov’s website.
The story is also a finalist in New Zealand’s Sir Julius Vogel Awards, so I’m doubly honored.
And, triply cool is that the fabulous cover image by artist Maurizio Manzieri for the story is also a finalist in the Asimov’s Awards. I’ll be releasing the story later in the year as a standalone ebook, with an alternative illustration that Maurizio has graciously licensed to me.
Exciting times. Fingers crossed.
As a bonus, most of the stories are available for a limited time to read online for free at the site.
