For those who may have wondered if Ann and I would continue the Last Drink Bird Head Awards for service to the SF/F community…we are! (Last year’s winners here, last year’s finalists here.) We’ll announce the finalist ballot soon, and the winners will be announced at Capclave in Washington D.C. in October.
As I may have mentioned, the Last Drink Bird Head anthology is now available for the Kindle, with all proceeds going to the ProLiteracy charity. The book features original flash fiction from the likes of Peter Straub, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Tanith Lee, Stephen R. Donaldson, Gene Wolfe, Ellen Kushner, and over sixty more. (It’s also a flip book!)
(As for the postmodern fiction conversation going on just below…I’ve found it incredibly fascinating, learned some things I didn’t know before, and a very gracious Brandon Sanderson stopped by to add thoughtful comments. Check it out if you haven’t already.)
