Congrats on your World Fantasy Award finalist story!

Thanks, Jeff! I just found out this morning, and the news is still slowly working its way from my ears into my brain. They say it's an honor just to be nominated, and you know what? It is!

Hey, man --
Again, huge congrats. I'm thrilled to see this happen for you. Not only is this a significant Chris Roberson accomplishment, but since this story was first published in LIVE WITHOUT A NET, it's yet another editorial accomplishment for the ever-rising star of Lou Anders.
I couldn't be happier for you!

hey, congrats, man.

John: Thanks. And you're absolutely right that the nom is as much a reflection on Lou as it is on my writing, so far as I'm concerned. "O One" was my first professional sale, so the various props it has garnered here and there (this nom, the Sidewise shortlisting, the mention in YBSF) I owe to Lou for publishing the story in the first place. Of course, now that he's publishing HT&E, we're having to serious consider changing our daughter's name from Georgia Rose to Georgia Lou, at the very least.

Adding to the congrats here, Chris. Excited about the book from PYR, too. Also, you should know that your story got the coolest artwork for in Electric Velocipede #7 (due out early September).

Thanks, John. That reminds me, I still owe you a bio, don't I? I'll try to get one to you shortly.

Yeah, getting all caught up in the world of awards and book launchs...I see what's happening....

Hey, a belated congratulations from me as well. (I've told Chris in person, but not been to the board in a while). Meanwhile, Chris hasn't pointed out, so I will, that "O One" is just the first in a series. A follow up story is appearing in an upcoming Asimov's, and there's an absolutely fantastic novella that was scheduled for Argosy, and several more in the series as well.

"...an absolutely fantastic novella that was scheduled for Argosy," said Lou.
Scheduled for Argosy and since withdrawn, I should point out, in the event that any editors out there are in the market for absolutely fantastic novellas. Any takers?
The follow up, "Red Hands, Black Hands," is slated to appear in the December issue of Asimov's, I believe.

Well, if you want to send it to me I'd be happy to take a look for SCIFICTION. How many words is it?
|Posted on Monday, August 09, 2004 - 09:16 pm: |
Thanks, Ellen! The same to you!
And I believe that the novella clocks in at right about 24,000, which I thought might run a little long for SCIFICTION. But if you still want to see it, I'd be happy to send it along!
