It's awards eligibility season, and after many years of being a fan, reviewer, and editor at Strange Horizons, I'm eligible as a writer. My debut novel, The Wall, was released by HarperCollins India in August 2020. It is a story about walls, about language and the world, and about learning to see.

As a debut, it is eligible for the Astounding Award, and other debut-specific awards. It's also eligible for in the novel category for awards that do not have place of publication as a requirement.
If you have a ballot at WorldCon, or at other places, I hope you'll consider it.
