Hey, Dora,

Congratulations on that World Fantsy Award Nomination for your Polyphony 4 story, The Wings of Meister Wilhelm. Very well deserved!

:-)

Many, many thanks!

I've been thinking and thinking about what to write, and the only thing that comes to mind (to be woefully honest) is: Wow. Weird. Are they serious? I mean, Kelly Link. China Mieville. I haven't read the Margo Lanagan story, but I know that everyone's been talking about it. So. Weird. I mean, it's fantastic, but wow.

Not the most graceful of reactions.

But I can tell everyone to read Kelly's story "The Faery Handbag," which (woefully again) is the only one of the stories that I've read. It's absolutely wonderful.

And now I have to figure out how to get to WFC!

So sorry, too, for being so absent from this board for the last few weeks. I've been caught between being sick and having all sorts of deadlines, and things I like to do (like post here) never seem to be the first priority. But I think the fall will be better . . .

Thanks again. Weird. Wow.

Thanks! And congratulations to Deborah, Ellen, and Lucius!

I'll be at WFC, which I'm looking forward to though I had to make plans suddenly (I wasn't originally planning to be there because of my teaching schedule, and I'll only be there Saturday and Sunday). But I figured if you're nominated for something, it's probably a good idea to show up (unless of course you're on another continent).

So, never having gone to an awards banquet, I'm looking forward to an interesting experience . . .

Congratulations! Yay Dora! Though I'm embarrassed to say I haven't read "Meister Wilhelm" yet (but I've read most of your other ones!). Must buy Polyphony 4 before WFC... Yours will be the first one I'll read.

I guess it's time for me to go congratulate Ellen...

Thanks!

Luís, I'm working on the manuscript, and will hopefully send you something in the next couple of days. (That's the manuscript for the collection. I think it will be seventeen short stories, two of them new . . .)

Alan, it's also in The Year's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy for Teens, which is a wonderful book, well worth buying. I particularly liked "Sergeant Chip" and "Displaced Persons." And Kelly Link's wonderful "The Faery Handbag" is also in there.

And can I just say: Rudyard Kipling's "They" (which is also in that anthology) always reminds me of Kipling doing Henry James. I find it almost impossible to actually read. Come to think of it, maybe it's the anti-Turn of the Screw?

"An anti-Turn of the Screw"? Now you've got me interested...

Dora, this spambot doesn't write one hundredth as well as you do. The plots...opaque isn't the word for it. ;-)

It's positively Joycean! :-)

(It's a Joycebot! And now legions of screaming Joyce fans can pelt me with rotten tomatoes. Actually, I like Joyce. But Finnegans Wake, oh my.)

No, a Joycebot would take an entire day to put seven words together (and then it would take another day to figure out what order they go in). :-D

Anthony Burgess did a very good annotated version of Finnegans Wake. Recommended.
