I’m speechless: “Mono no aware” has been nominated for a Hugo in the Short Story category (along with Aliette de Bodard’s “Immersion” and Kij Johnson’s “Mantis Wives” — and Aliette is also nominated for her novella, “On a Red Station, Drifting”).
Thank you, everyone who nominated me. You’ve made me so happy and I’m very grateful.

I’m really, really proud to be listed with Aliette and Kij, congrats to them both and good luck!
My heartiest congratulations to all the nominees — many of whom are friends and writers/artists/editors I admire. Good luck to all of you!
