I haven't published much short fiction this year, due to the effects of my cancer journey on both my productivity at the keyboard and on my focus on marketing. Such writing time as I've had has remained focused on my novels. Nonetheless, a few things have squeaked out into the marketplace.

For my own part, I think the best of these is my Sunspin novelette, "A Long Walk Home", which has been selected for Year's Best Science Fiction volume 29. If you're a Hugo or Nebula voter, I hope you'll give it consideration.

Anyway, here's the list.

Endurance (Green, volume 2), Tor Books

"A Long Walk Home", Subterranean Online
"The Decaying Mansions of Memory", Untold Adventures

Short Fiction
"The Blade of His Plow", Human for a Day, ed. Martin H. Greenberg and Jennifer Brozek
"A Critical Examination of Stigmata's Print Taking the Rats to Riga", The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities: Exhibits, Oddities, Images, and Stories from Top Authors and Artists, ed. Jeff and Ann VanderMeer
"'Hello,' Said the Gun", Daily Science Fiction
"A Place to Come Home To" (with Shannon Page), When the Hero Comes Home, ed. Gabrielle Harbowy and Ed Greenwood
"Unchambered Heart", ChiZine
"You Know What Hunts You", The Edge of Propinquity
