I’m very pleased to tell you that one of my stories from 2020 (“The Past, Like a River in Flood”) has been chosen by Rich Horton for inclusion in his Year’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy, 2021 Edition. The table of contents can be seen on Rich’s blog, here.
When I wrote that story, I was thinking about natural disasters I had witnessed, some quite close up, and some institutional failures they’d left in their wake. I didn’t really want a story about institutional failure and its human cost to be quite as timely as it turned out to be, but…I’m glad the story resonated, all the same, and I’m still very proud of it. And so happy to be in a volume with so many other stories I enjoyed, and some that are new to me, some I’ll be glad to discover.
