I'm a 2008 Aurora Award Finalist!
My short story "The Dancer at the Red Door" is on the final ballot for the 2008 Aurora Award in the category "Best Short Form Work in English." This story first appeared in 2007 in the DAW anthology UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS (editors Julie Czerneda and Jana Paniccia). Julie told me that the story inspired the artwork for the antho's spiffy cover. Look left. See thumbnail of cover. Click on thumbnail. Go "ooh!!! ah!!!". Better yet, read the story here. If you enjoy "The Dancer...", please consider voting for it for the Aurora Award.
