Raven is WSFA Small Press Award finalist!

I learned today that "Through the Cooking Glass" by Vylar Kaftan, published April 2006 in Raven Electrick, was a finalist for the Washington Science Fiction Association Small Press Award for Short Fiction. Vylar and I are invited to an awards ceremony at the annual WSFA convention, Capclave, and we will receive certificates and free membership at the convention. Needless to say, I'm thrilled for Vylar and Raven Electrick.

It's always tempting to think that flash fiction won't have a chance for these awards and that I shouldn't bother to take the time to nominate. But tenacity (or stubbornness) has always been my middle name, so I'm glad I did!

Congrats to vylar_kaftan, and thanks for contributing your story to Raven Electrick!

The story is still available at Raven Electrick, if anyone wants to take a peek.
