Great news to start the day! Locus has announced the finalists for the 2013 Locus Awards. I’m deeply honoured to be short listed for Best Editor and delighted to see that Edge of Infinity and The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year: Volume Six are finalists for Best Anthology. Even more pleasing is that stories from Edge of Infinity, Hugo nominee “The Girl-Thing Who Went Out for Sushi” by Pat Cadigan and “Deeps of the Sky” by Elizabeth Bear, have been short listed for Best Novelette and Best Short Story respectively. My sincere congratulations to them, and to all of my fellow nominees.
I especially want to thank the great team at Solaris who have made Edge of Infinity such a success, and everyone behind the scenes who worked on The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year: Volume Six at Night Shade. It’s a privilege to work with all of them.
I wish I could be at the Locus Awards Weekend. It sounds like a brilliant time and I envy everyone who will be there more than a little.
