Muy cool news: my story "Public Safety" has just been nominated for a Sidewise Award, which is given each year for the best alternate history stories and novels. A quick glance at the other nominees (listed below) tells me that I won't win, but that's okay: this is the first story of mine to be nominated for any kind of award, despite a few hints and some loud throat-clearing, so I'm pretty happy with that.
