Yesterday, Ross Lockhart, my publisher at Word Horde, wrote to tell me that Children of the Fang and Other Genealogies has made the short list for the Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award for Best Short Story Collection/Anthology. To that I say, Hurrah! And also thanks, for all who voted to put it there. I haven’t seen the final ballot, yet, but best wishes to all who are on it. Do I need a silver falchion? What do you think?
