Very cool: Irregular Verbs and Other Stories
made the Sunburst Award longlist. Even cooler: the names of the other books on the list, including Pastoral
by Andre Alexis, Consumed
by David Cronenberg (!), Gifts for the One Who Comes After
by friend-and-intro-writer Helen Marshall, Head Full of Mountains
Brent Hayward, Knife Fight
by David Nickle, The Back of the Turtle
by Thomas King, Lockstep
by Karl Schroeder, Station Eleven
by Emily St. John Mandel, All My Real Children
by Jo Walton, Echopraxia
by Peter Watts... well, it is
a long list!
Of course the quality of those other books mean mine is a lot less likely to be on the short list, never mind win the prize, but all things considered I'd rather be an also-ran on a slate of really great books than, well...
