Romanian Translation and New Review

Two good pieces of news fell in my lap this past week.  My Story “Repeat Performance” has been reprinted in FANTASTICA, published by the Romanian Science Fiction and Fantasy Society. It’s really wonderful! Even if you can’t read Romanian, head over and take a look. Visit:  FANTASTICA.

Other news is that my story “A Woman of Light and Steel,” published in Jupiter SF and a Honorable Mention for the Nova Short Story Competition, was briefly reviewed at SFREVU. They called it a “very imaginative story”. Short, but I’ll take it! Visit: SFRevu.

Nova Short Story Competition – Results

A few months ago I entered the Nova Short Story competition, run by the sffsa. Nova is the magazine element of the Science Fiction and Fantasy South Africa group. The section of the competition I entered was judged by Arthur C. Clarke winner Lauren Beukes.

Though I did not win a place, I made the final cut and earned a spot on the Highly Recommended list.

Check out the winners and other authors whose work was recommended at the website link above or  click here:  Nova Short Story.
