I have now published a story in an award winning anthology. Yeehaw!
Polaris did not win an Aurora. This is not surprising: another anthology by the same editor, and put out by a bigger publishing company, was on the same ballot — and it won instead.
I would like to congratulate my editor, Julie E. Czerneda, on both wins.
(And congrats to all the other winners as well, of course — it’s just that Julie is the only winner of either award that I actually know.)
