My story Ritchie Boss: Private Investigator Manager has put me in the running for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. This is my first year of eligibility.

Now, the circumstances of this story aren’t your typical Campbell-fare. I can’t recall academic publishing ever being mentioned in the context of this contest (though I welcome correction from historians). The other unique thing about this story is that it’s released under a Creative Commons license (and I’d love to see what someone else can do with it).

Here’s my Writertopia page.

My story also appears in the great 2013 Campbellian Pre-Reading Anthology, which you can download free for a limited time.

So there it is. I’ll probably end up promoting this more than I’m comfortable with and less than I should. Blog post ends.
