Rhysling nomination!

I'm delighted to report that my poem "They Threw Their Daughters into the Sea," which first appeared in the spring 2007 issue of Goblin Fruit, has been nominated for a Rhysling Award from the Science Fiction Poetry Association in the short poem category. Yay! 

It's been a couple of years between nominations for me. My only prior nomination was in 2005, for "Witch, You Say."

Audio versions of both of these poems have appeared on SFPA's Halloween Poetry Reading page, but it's not like I'm going to start getting superstitious or anything. (Starts considering which poem to record for this October.) :-)
