Awards Reading Post

Published on February 1, 2016 by

Edited to add: The story has just been named one of four short fiction nominees for the Association for Mormon Letters Awards.

If you’re nominating for awards, I have a short story that I’m quite proud of that is eligible this year: “An Immense Darkness“, which was published in the March 2015 issue of Analog Science Fiction & Fact.  Here’s what some reviewers have said about the story:

“An Immense Darkness” is the most intense five pages I’ve read in quite a while. . . . This is everything I want in science fiction.

Very interesting look at possible future ethics.

Sam Tomaino, SFRevu [source]

This [story] is timely, very much so.

–Lois Tilton, Locus [source]

A good, moving and thought provoking story.

I’m making “An Immense Darkness” available for free here. A free audio version is available on StarShipSofa.

Also, a quick note about eligibility for my novel Unforgettable: Baen’s ebook version was published in 2015, but the novel is not eligible for the Nebula or Hugo awards because I self-published an earlier version of the novel back in 2011.
