Why it pays to network

I just found out through the grapevine my story Spark, which was published late last year in the Australian anthology Zombies, has recieved an Honorable Mention in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror 2008. Authors who get an Honorable Mention are not notified by the editors, so without a proper network in place, you'll never know.

I was thrilled to find out that not only did Spark get an Honorable Mention, but it was listed as Ellen Datlow's (one of the editors) favorite story in the anthology! Or, at least it was the first story she mentioned of 4 or 5 she liked. Same diff in my book. :)

This is my second Honorable Mention in the Year's Best anthologies, my first being for my story Forever Young way back in 1996. Hopefully it won't be another 12 years until my next one. Or maybe next time my story will be published in full in the anthology. Hey, a guy can dream.
