[awards] Sturgeon Award nomination, also, "When shall we three meet again?"

I am quite pleased to note that my Sunspin novella, The Weight of History, the Lightness of the Future", originally published at Subterranean Online, is a finalist for the 2013 Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award.

I am quite amused to note that of the four major awards I have been nominated for this year, all in the novella category, I share the nomination in all four cases with Aliette de Bodard and Nancy Kress. Clearly we three shall need to meet at dawn upon a field of honor. Perhaps fountain pen nibs at ten paces. Nancy and I have been teasing one another about it since the Hugo nominations came out.

Aliette, we're coming for you.

The lists, which make for interesting consideration:
