My "Thorns" story wins Interzone Readers Poll, now available as both a reprint and podcast

Big news about my story "When Thorns Are the Tips of Trees," published last year in Interzone: It won the 2008 Interzone Readers Poll!Many thanks to everyone who liked the story and voted for it, and a massive thanks to Andy Cox and the Interzone editors for publishing it.

In other great news, the story was reprinted this week in the final issue of Apex Magazine, while StarShipSofa has published a wonderful podcast version. So go read/listen to the story!

BTW, my other Interzone story, "The Ships Like Clouds, Risen by Their Rain," placed #4 in the Readers' Poll and will appear a few weeks from now in Year's Best SF 14.
