As my pal and separated-at-birth-step-twin jaylake reports
we've just learned that our story, "The Starship Mechanic,"
has been picked up for Year's Best Science Fiction, Volume 28
, edited by Gardner Dozois.
After several honorable mentions over the last decade or so, I'm over the moon on this one. And it's made sweeter because it's a collaboration with Jay. For those just joining us, this story was one of two
we tackled in a Write-Off at Borderlands Books in San Francisco.
It was great fun and I had no idea when we tackled these two tales that one of them would be my first entry in a series of Best Of's that I've loved for a long, long time.
