I’m on the AURORA AWARDS ballot!

Huge and thrilling news today: I have received an Aurora Award nomination for my story CLEAR AS QUARTZ, SHARP AS FLINT, published in Augur Magazine 2.1 last year!


I am so grateful and can barely believe that I’m on a ballot with so many wonderful creative people. The full ballot is up on the Aurora Awards website, but the short fiction category looks like this:

This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone, Saga Press
Clear as Quartz, Sharp as Flint by Maria Haskins, Augur Magazine, issue 2.1
Alice Payne Rides by Kate Heartfield, Publishing
Little Inn on the Jianghu by Y.M. Pang, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, September
Modigliani Paints the World by Hayden Trenholm, Neo-Opsis, Issue #30
Blindside by Liz Westbrook-Trenholm, Amazing Stories, v. 77, issue no. 1, Fall

Like I said, this is some amazing company to be in!


If you want to check out my story, you can buy the issue (and get a sneak peek at my story), or (even better!) subscribe. Augur is a fantastic Canadian SFF zine, and I am also very happy to see them on the ballot in the illustrious “Best Related Work” category:
