More good news for Distinction in the Darkness! I received word this evening that the story was selected as one of Bewildering Stories Mariner Award winners for 2014.
The Mariner Awards are named for one of the first successful interplanetary missions. Distinction in the Darkness is one of 40 titles listed — out of 304 for the year — that the Review Board has rated most highly in 2014. They have earned Bewildering Stories’ most signal honor.
I've been selected as one of 25 authors to receive this honor. I'm hugely thankful to the press for selecting me and my work. I can't imagine a better way to end 2014.
