The List



I forgot how to breathe earlier today...

I saw a link to Ellen Datlow's Full Honorable Mention list (ie the long list) and first I noticed that Aaron Polson was on the list and then I noticed that I was on the list...

Well not me exactly--my story 'The Hollow Framework for the Cotton Man' which was in Postscripts 22/23.

Oh my freaking god.

I can't deny that if I had a list of things to achieve, then a mention from Ellen would be on that list.

However, I may have to tippex my computer screen so that I can remove Jacob Garbe from between me and Neil Gaiman. Other folk on the list include Simon Bestwick, Lee Thompson, Lavie Tidhar, E Catherine Tobler, Jason Fischer, Patty Jansen, DeAnna Knippling, Alison J Littlewood, Felicity Dowker, Kurt Newton, Gary McMahon (who got 11 nominations - show off :D) and others.

P.S. Don't forget, there's still time to enter my competition to win Space & Time magazine and an Amazon Gift Card.

That's awesome!

I saw your (or someone's) tweet about this last night, and when I went to bed I dreamed Ellen Datlow was interviewing you. She sounded just like Terry Gross on All Things Considered. I was so proud that I knew you. :)
