(I’m not sure how to do a) 2018 Awards Eligibility Round-up (but I tried)

Obligatory (but a first for me) year-end awards eligibility post. I’d be delighted if you’d read and consider these stories for your Bram Stoker/Nebula/World Fantasy/Hugo/Campbell Award nominations and recommendations.

New Story in Factor Four Magazine!

“Sunset City” by Holly Heisey

Hey-ooo! I have a new story out this week! “The Half-Life of a Broken Heart” is in Issue 2 of Factor Four Magazine. You can read it online (with a subscription) or get Issue 2 as a stand-alone in print or digital formats (additional retail links below).

This story means a lot to me–it’s one of my most personal, even though it doesn’t involve any actual personal details…it’s kind of hard to explain. I’m so excited it’s out in the world and in such fantastic company (seriously, fantastic)–I hope you’ll check it out soon!

Also, since this is a story about loss and grief*, please consider donating to RAICES Texas to help alleviate some of the grief we’re currently inflicting on children here in America.

So Many Metaphorosis Updates

I have a bunch of updates from Metaphorosis Magazine, so I’m grouping them together–fun and efficient!

First up, Metaphorosis‘s talented editor, B. Morris Allen, has collected together all of the January 2017 stories into one fine-looking Kindle edition. The January 2017 issue includes my story, “Business As Usual,” which, unfortunately, becomes relevant again every 1.2 days or so.

If you’re interested in reading all the stories published by Metaphorosis in 2017, check out Metaphorosis 2017: The Complete Stories available on Amazon in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle editions.)

To my delight, “Business As Usual” was also selected for Metaphorosis‘s Best Vegan Science Fiction & Fantasy of 2017 anthology, available in print and Kindle editions. All the stories in this collection are meat-free and excellent–check ’em out!

Finally, if you enjoyed “Business As Usual” in any of its appearances, I encourage you to support Everytown or March for Our Lives.
