Top-Ten Story in Critters Poll
I'm delighted to report that my short story, "The Tiger and the Waif," won two Top Ten awards in this year's Critters Workshop poll. It was voted second place in the Positive Future Short Stories, and fifth place among the Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Short Stories. Thanks to all my supporters who voted for my story.
The story appears in the Writers of the Future Volume 37 anthology, which received the first place award for Anthologies. Other stories in the anthology were also recognized in the Critters poll, including "Sixers" (first place in Magical Realism), "The Widows Might" (first place in Steampunk), and "The Enfield Report" (seventh place in Horror). The anthology was also awarded first place for its cover art.
