Lois Tilton kindly included my Early Winter, Near Jenli Village on her Year’s Best list (10 best Fantasy Stories published in 2009). It was my only story to see print in 2009, so I’m glad someone noticed it.
She notes that her lists often differ from the other reviewers–partially a matter of taste, but also due to the absence of anthologies from her reading selections. She’s strictly on the periodicals beat. That’s fine with me. Either way, I’m absolutely floored, and so grateful that she liked that story.
