“Gemma Barrows” Made Tangent Online’s Recommended Reading List for 2015

I was delighted this morning to learn that my story, “Gemma Barrows Comes to Cooperstown” made Tangent Online’s Recommended Reading List for 2015. This is the second story of mine to make this list. Back in 2013, my story, “The Negative Impact of Climate Change on the Unusual Beasts of the World” also made the list.

Gemma Barrows” was the lead story in the May 2015 issue of InterGalactic Medicine Show. It was the first time I had the lead/cover story in any magazine. My thanks go out to Edmund Schubert for taking the story. Thanks are also due to Juliette Wade, and Jay Werkheiser, both of whom gave me good feedback on the story as beta-readers.

Many of my friends have stories on Tangent’s recommended reading list this year, including Bud Sparhawk, Alvaro Zinos-Amaro, Jay Werkheiser, Alethea Kontis, Liz Argall, and Allen Steele. I’m sure I’m forgetting some others, but it is a long list. Congratulations to everyone.
