You know that “six degrees of separation” thing? Or that party game about linking every movie ever made back to Kevin Bacon?
Well, I’m kinda, sorta one step away from a Hugo nomination by three different paths!
P. Alexander and Cirsova Magazine have been nominated for best semi-pro zine. And my story, “The Lion’s Share,” appeared in Issue #3!
Jeffro Johnson and his Castalia House blog has been nominated for best fan writer and best fan zine. And just recently, Mr. Johnson posted a very positive review of my novelette, The Thorne Legacy.
And John Picacio has been nominated for best professional artist. I’m pretty darn sure (though not 100%, mind you) that he and I shared a day at Dragon’s Liar comics in San Antonio signing stuff on Free Comic Book Day a few years ago. We sat right next to each other.
So by shear proximity, I should be getting a Hugo award, if not this year, then next year!
