Scribe Award Nomination & Comicpalooza Time

fhimtw2Earlier this week, the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers announced their Scribe Award nominees.  To my utter surprise and delight, my SG-1 short story, Perceptions, (appearing in Fandemonium’s Stargate Horizons anthologywas nominated.  The other nominees are fantastic, serious heavy-hitter authors so I’m blown away to be in their company:

Pathfinder: Hunter’s Folly by Josh Vogt
Mike Hammer: It’s in the Book by Max Collins and Mickey Spillane
Pathfinder: Queen Sacrifice by Steven Savile
Tales of Valdemar: Written in the Wind by Jennifer Brozek
