Someone Comes to Town shortlisted for Canada’s Sunburst award

I'm pleased as punch to say that my novel, Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leave Town has been shortlisted for the Sunburst, Canada's national science fiction award. The Sunburst jury honored me with the award in 2004 for my short story collection A Place So Foreign and Eight More and this is a double-helping of delight.

Someone Comes to Town... comes out in a new trade paperback edition this week, too!
