Interzone Readers' Poll Winner

I woke up this morning to the news that my novella "SublimationAngels" (PDF download) won this year's Interzone Readers' Poll, while my story "Here We Are, Falling Through Shadows" tied for sixth. Many thanks to all the Interzone readers who enjoyed the stories and voted for them.

This marks the second straight year I've won the Interzone Readers' Poll. My story "When Thorns Are The Tips Of Trees" (PDF download) won the 2008 Interzone Readers Poll.

I should note "Sublimation Angels" was originally published in Interzone's Sept./Oct. 2009 issue and is also a finalist for this year's Nebula Award and on the long list for the British Fantasy Award.

Again, many many thanks to all the readers who have enjoyed and supported my Interzone stories. And many congrats to Eugie Foster, Chris Butler, and Rebecca J. Payne for rounding out the top four in the poll. I'm also a little shocked Eugie's story "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast" didn't win--it was one of my favorite stories of 2009 and well-deserves the many honors it has received, including being a finalist for the Nebula and Hugo Awards.
