Yesterday morning, I was honored to receive the Reader’s Award from Asimov’s Magazine’s clearly wonderful and discerning readers. :-). It was a breakfast event with such fine company as Connie Willis and charming daughter Cordelia, Paul Melko, Brian Bieniowski… and — much more humble before he finally received a Nebula for Burn later in the evening — James Patrick Kelly. I wish I could have taken a movie of him as he RAN to the podium to pick up his Award. Only James Bond runs faster in a tuxedo.
And, as previously noted, if you haven’t had a chance to read “Yellow Card Man” before, you can read it for free on the Asimov’s site. Take a gander.
