I apologize to my Facebook and Twitter friends who have seen this already, but I found out last night that my story, “Card Sharp”, from The Way of the Wizard anthology, made the British Fantasy Award long list, or their recommendations as they call it. And while I didn’t make the cut to the short list, I’m happy that someone liked the story well enough to nominate it for an award. This story seems to be the most popular one I’ve written so far, so I feel good that there are more related projects in the works.
The list also includes The Way of the Wizard anthology, edited by John Joseph Adams, and the story “Tethered” by fellow Altered Fluid member Mercurio D. Rivera.
And since I have the excuse, I should mention that “Card Sharp” is still available to read for free online at The Way of the Wizard site as well as being available in podcast form at Podcastle.
