This is my first time doing one of these! I’d be honoured if people would read and consider the five stories I had published in 2019. If you only have time for one, I’d like to point you towards “Annotated Setlist of the Mikaela Cole Jazz Quintet.” If you’re only interested in fantasy, please consider “Katabasis” or “The Bear Wife”.
This is my first year of eligibility for the Astounding Award (previously known as the Campbell Award). And just a note that I am Canadian, if you vote or nominate for the Aurora Awards.
