James Reasoner announced earlier today that two of the stories from his anthology Tales From the Otherverse have been nominated for the Sidewise Award. I had the privilege of having a story accepted for that anthology, and no, mine isn’t one of the nominees.
The stories are “The Hero of Deadwood” by James Reasoner, and “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” by Bill Crider. If you haven’t read them, you should. They’re both top notch. The entire anthology is. (I’m speaking of the other stories; modesty prevents me fromo commenting on my own work.) And that’s not just my opinion. Tales From the Otherverse was the only publication to have more than one story on the short list. So congratulations to James and Bill on their fine work and congratulations to James on editing such a outstanding anthology.
Details about the Sidewise Awards can be found here. The winners will be announced at this year’s Worldcon, MidAmeriCon II, this August.
