I already mentioned that the anthology HANZAI JAPAN, edited by the redoubtable Nick Mamatas, has been nominated for a Locus Award. Well, now comes news that PROTECTORS 2, edited by the impressive Thomas Pluck, and JEWISH NOIR, edited by the unstoppable Kenneth Wishnia, have both been nominated for Anthony Awards. I have stories in all three books. Thank you, Nick, Thom, and Ken, for the chance to work with you and so many great writers. Good luck to all!
