My tin duck has safely winged its way to me, courtesy of the wonderful Stephanie Bateman-Graham (who graciously accepted on my behalf).

Kudos to whoever was in charge of designing the award this year. It looks most shiny on the shelf above my writing desk.

The table of contents for the Ticonderoga Publications anthology Kisses by Clockwork, edited by Liz Gryzb, has been announced:

  • Marilag Angway, “Smuggler’s Deal”
  • Cherith Baldry, “The Venetian Cat”
  • Gio Clairval, “The Writing Cembalo”
  • M L D Curelas, “Ironclad”
  • Ray Dean, “Practically Perfect”
  • Stephanie Gunn, “Escapement”
  • Richard Harland, “The Kiss of Reba Maul”
  • Rebecca Harwell, “Love in the Time of Clockwork Horses”
  • Faith Mudge, “Descension”
  • Nicole Murphy, “The Wild Colonial Clockwork Boy”
  • Katrina Nicholson, “Lady Presto Magnifico and the Disappearing Glass Ceiling”

I am most pleased about this sale, because Escapement is one of a twinned set of novellas/novelettes that explore a new world – a kind of twisted post-apocalyptic steampunk world – for me.  I very much look forward to the release of the anthology in April.

And now, another lesson from my slush reading experience.

Sometimes, you will get to read something awesome.  Something that will make you cry, and will stick in your head long afterwards.  And sometimes you will get to see that author squee afterwards about selling their story (note that no author names are attached when we get them as slush) and you will be so, so happy.

And sometimes that story will be so good that you’ll be convinced that it was actually one of the stories you read for the Hugos and will drive yourself a little nuts wondering why it wasn’t in your Hugos folder so you can just vote for it, dammit.

Yeah, sometimes reading slush is absolutely awesome.

It is with much squee that I can announce that my story, The Skin of the World, will be appearing in the upcoming Ticonderoga Publications anthology Bloodstonesedited by Amanda Pillar.

For those following along with the patchwork quilt of my writing worlds, The Skin of the World is a prequel to the novel I’ve been working on (which is currently in a very messy draft that needs to be stripped to the bone), The White Raven, and also takes place in the same universe as Narthex, which was published in In Bad Dreams 2: Where Death Stalks.  Yes, I like having interconnected stories!

Here’s a little peek into how awesome this is for me – not only do I get to work with Amanda again, who is an amazing editor (she was co-editor for Grants Pass), but there’s also this: a few months ago, I sat down and started making a list of goals I’d like to achieve with my career, including some of the publishers that I’d like to sell stories (or longer works) to.  And Ticonderoga was on that list :)

The awesome table of contents:

  • Joanne Anderton, “Sanaa’s Army”
  • Alan Baxter, “Cephalopoda Obsessia”
  • Jenny Blackford, “A Moveable Feast”
  • Vivian Caethe, “Skin”
  • MD Curelas, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes”
  • Thoraiya Dyer, “Surviving Film”
  • Dirk Flinthart, “The Bull in Winter”
  • Stephanie Gunn, “The Skin of the World”
  • Richard Harland, “A Mother’s Love”
  • Pete Kempshall, “Dead Inside”
  • Penny Love, “A Small Bad Thing”
  • Karen Maric, “Embracing the Invisible”
  • Christine Morgan, “Ferreau’s Curse”
  • Nicole Murphy, “Euryale”
  • Jessica Otis, “And the Dead Shall be Raised Incorruptible”
  • Dan Rabarts, “The Bone Plate”
  • Erin Underwood, “The Foam Born”
Bloodstones will be released in October 2012.

Guy Salvidge has reviewed Epilogue and has some very favourable things to say about the anthology and about my story, Ghosts:

Stephanie Gunn’s “Ghosts” is another impressive offering in a now-rarely seen SF subgenre: life in an underground shelter after the bomb. Nadya and Mater are teenagers who have the mixed blessing of being fertile in a world where women give birth to genetic monsters and there are no doctors. Nadya’s father insists that she produce an offspring with Mater, but she has a different goal in mind. Visceral and concrete, like the bunker featured herein, “Ghosts” is among my favourite stories in Epilogue.

I am stupidly happy to be in this anthology, and totally chuffed that Guy enjoyed my story.
