The 2009 Interzone Readers’ Poll has been announced, and I’m very happy to announce that my story “Saving Deigo” was voted #5. Paul Berger’s “Home Again” tied for sixth place, and Alaya Dawn Johnson’s “Far and Deep” tied for tenth. Jason Sanford came in with the win for his excellent story “Sublimation Angels.” Interzone is one of the best-looking and has some of the best content of any genre magazine publishing today, and I’m super proud to be on that list with several of my fellow Altered Fluidians.
Speaking of Fluidians, last night we attended Alaya’s book release party for her forthcoming novel Moonshine. We decked ourselves out in 20s attire and danced to live jazz. We even saw a dance performance by the banana-belted and talented Kristen Mangione. I expect today to see lots of pictures from the night.
