Eric Choi posted yesterday on the Facebook Group Page for The Dragon and the Stars that four stories from that anthology received honorable mentions in The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Eighth Annual Collection, edited by Gardner Dozois. One of those stories was mine, Across the Sea! Needless to say I'm very excited to hear this. I've sold only eight short stories in my entire life, and two of them have been honorably mentioned in Year's Best anthologies.
The other stories were The Character of the Hound, by Tony Pi, The Water Weapon, by Brenda Clough, and The Son of Heaven, by Eric Choi. This is an impressive showing from the anthology, so I'll again say to the editors, WELL DONE! They worked so hard to take this anthology from initial idea to printed book, and didn't stop there. They've worked tirelessly to promote it and boost its sales. I'm honored to be included in this project, and I wish Eric and Derwin much success in their future ventures.
And meanwhile, squeeee! I find short stories very, very difficult to write, so this kind of recognition makes me giddy.
