My SF short “Amaryllis” has been picked for the Year’s Best Science Fiction edited by Gardner Dozois.  This is a first for me, and I’m very excited.    It’s one of those milestones that’s been on my list since I started out.

    Way back in community college, the library had a bunch of YBSF books and I used to browse them between classes. Regrettably, I don’t remember much except “Johnny Mnemonic” and some weird story about two African dictators deciding the fate of their countries with a boxing match. And Mr. Dozois’ curmudgeonly summations where he ranted on the ongoing demise of the SF magazines. (“It was again a very bad year…”)

  4. Oh, how awesome is that?

    Very happy for you!

    Well done! As an avid reader of Science Fiction in my youth I remember that the highest quality stories were always to be found in the “Best of” collections.

  7. Congratulations Carrie!

    Yay! I’ve looked for your name in Best anthologies, thinking you must be in one. Prescience, perhaps. I’m glad you can cross another milestone off your list!
