Honorable Enough

Killing Words won an honorable mention in Writers of the Future, the big science fiction and fantasy contest.

On one hand hand, this is only an attaboy, because to a professional outlet an honorable is a certification that, according to one judge, this story was not the best, and they only want to publish the best.

On the other hand it's nice that a professional author put a stamp of quality on the story. Ann C. Crispin did not get Killing Words at all and thought it was a horrible mess. I disagreed, but not audibly, since she is somebody in writing and I am nobody.

So I'm putting the certificate up on my wall.
