Nirvana Cat received Honorable Mention in the Writers of the Future Contest.
I excerpted Nirvana Cat here.
I talked about where the idea came from here.
I used Nirvana Cat to talk about about atmosphere and point of view here.
It is nice to see that a professional speculative fiction writer thought I was among the top contestants in the most prestigious contest in the world, but I am not going out tonight to celebrate because I want to win. I am not satisfied with good. I want the best.
I already have some suggested revisions for the story, so it's time to see if I can sell it.
Wish me luck!
