As I do near the beginning of every month, I popped over to Lightspeed Magazine to check out their upcoming lineup. Not only will they have a story by Connie Willis at the end of the month, but I also learned that they were named the winner of the Million Writers Award for best new online magazine and that one of their stories from last year, Adam-Troy Castro’s “Arvies“, won the top story award. That’s exciting, considering I have story (“Thief of Futures”) tentatively scheduled to appear in the September issue. Now I can say I have stories forthcoming in two award-winning magazines (Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine being the other).
So congratulations to editor John Joseph Adams and all the folks over at Lightspeed. It’s a well deserved honor.
