I’m very pleased to report that my dark sf poem “In the Quiet Hour” has won the 2014 Asimov’s Readers Award. The awards were announced and presented yesterday at the Nebula Awards Weekend in Chicago. Winners in all the categories should be up at Locus Online in the next day or two. You can find the poem in the April/May 2014 Asimov’s SF, or in my recent collection Resonance Dark and Light (Eldritch Press), available at Amazon and other online booksellers.
