Space Magic is an Endeavour Award finalist!!  
Now it can be told: Space Magic, my first collection of short stories, is a finalist for the Endeavour Award!

The Endeavour is an award for a science fiction or fantasy book written by a Pacific Northwest author, and is presented each year at OryCon.

The other finalists for 2009 are Anathem by Neal Stephenson, Ill Met in the Arena by Dave Duncan, Long Walks, Last Flights and Other Stories by Ken Scholes, and A World Too Near: Book Two of the Entire and the Rose by Kay Kenyon. (Tough competition! It's an honor just to be nominated.) The judges for this year, who will select the recipient from among the finalists, are Joe Haldeman, John Helfers, and Sarah Zettel.

If you do not yet own a copy of my newly-award-nominated book, you can correct that little problem at Wheatland Press. They're even having a sale right now: buy two books, get one free!

Space Magic is also available in a limited hardcover edition of 100 copies, signed and numbered, exclusively from Wrigley-Cross Books.

Unaccountably, my copy of Space Magic is not autographed. Which Clarion West party (if any) do you plan to attend this year?

Thanks! Current plan is to attend the 7/10 party.

Congrats dude! I suggested to Jim that we mud wrestle at the awards ceremony. :D

Congrats to you too!

I managed to beat Jay with the pool noodle, but lost the Campbell. I'm pretty sure I'd lose to you at mud wrestling, so... maybe...
