I know I don't usually post on Saturdays. But I thought I'd share the information that "Libertarian Russia" won an Asimov's Readers' Award for best short story this morning.
The award was a tie with Carol Emshwiller's "The Lovely Ugly." Carol's a wonderful writer and a lovely person, that that was particularly nice.
Above, l-r: Allen Steele with best novelette ARA for "The Emperor of Mars," Sheila Williams, me.
