Selena Thomason, editor of Dragons, Knights & Angels, yesterday announced the stories that made the cut in that magazine's short story contest:
Chris Mikesell, "The Fortunate Purgatory of Arthur MacArthur"
Jane LeBak, "Even A Stone"
Rachel A. Marks, "The Waters Stir"
Micheal C. Planck, "Heartwyrm"
The stories will be published this month, beginning with the honorable mention titles earlier in June, and Mr. Mikesell's winning tale on the 27th.
Note: A bit of Mir trivia
Today, June 5th, 2006, is the 24th anniversary of my first date with hubby-hunkypoo. We met at an SF film preview (Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan) on June 3. Our first date was also an SF film (since horror is more and more included in the SF umbrella): Poltergeist. Our third date was to yet another SF film: ET. No wonder I love the genre. :)
June 27th, the day when the winning story appears online, will be the 24th anniversary of the first time hubby (then adorable boyfriend) first told me he loved me and I, then far cuter than now, first told him I loved him. And a superlative day that was, summer of '82. Ah, ain't true love grand.
(BTW, he's still the loveliest, sweetest, and sexiest man alive.)
