It seems my alt-history novelette, “Butterfly, Falling at Dawn”, has placed 10th in Interzone’s annual Readers’ Poll. *happy writer*
I’m pleased to see that several of my own favourites (“His Master’s Voice” by Hannu Rajaniemi, “Little Lost Robot” by Paul McAuley) have also made the Top Ten. (though I preferred “Rat Island” to “Greenland” in the Chris Beckett special issue).
Many thanks to those who voted for me–either positively or negatively, come to think of it. I’d rather you hated my guts than not remember me. It’s a story that has a lot of extra meaning for me in many ways (more on that later).
PS: there will be a VD4 report, as soon as I’ve filched pictures to go with it, since I was a dweeb and forgot my camera.
