My Story Makes Tangent's Recommended Reading List of 2013!

I'm honored to say that my story "Will YOU Volunteer to Kill Wendy?" (Galaxy's Edge, November 2013) made Tangent's Recommended Reading List for 2013.  My thanks to Galaxy's Edge editor, SF legend Mike Resnick.


You can read the full list here: http://www.tangentonline.com/news-mainmenu-158/2318-tangent-online-2013-recommended-reading-list.


(Note that they misspelled the story's title as "Would you . . ." rather than "Will you . . ."  Oh well, at least they didn't misspell my name!)


Several friends, new and old, also appeared on the list.  Most important to me, my old mentor from Kansas City days, Rob Chilson, was on the same list for his haunting story "Half as Old as Time" in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.  It's an honor to be on the same list as Rob.


If you'd like to get a copy of the issue of Galaxy's Edge that had my story in it, you can order it electronically or as a hard copy.  It includes new stories from other rising new writers, as well as some classic reprints by legends of the field.  Just go to this link and scroll down to the November 2013 issue:
