The Spring issue is now available. I am also pleased to announce the winners of the Readers' Choice Award:

"Capelthwaite Barn" by Deborah P. Kolodji

Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to everyone who voted.

March 17

Pardon me while I engage in some cross-promotion. Frequent Fables contributor Stephen D. Rogers tied for second place in Shred of Evidence's Readers' Choice Award. That story ("Dust is Thicker than Water") was also selected as a Notable Online Short Story by storySouth as part of the Million Writers Award. (And while we're on that subject, the winner is "You Are a 14-Year-Old Arab Chick Who Just Moved to Texas" by Randa Jarrar.)

March 12

Mildly belated congratulations to the Fables contributors whose work made the HWA's preliminary Stoker ballot. Angeline Hawkes-Craig's "Long Live the Queen" (Femmes de la Brume) and Simon Wood's "Warning Signs" (Vivisection) appear in the Short Fiction category. Bruce Boston's works include Pitchblend (Dark Regions Press) in the Poetry Collection category and "The Crow is Dismantled in Flight" (Miniature Sun Press) in the Alternate Forms category. Marge Simon's Artist of Antithesis (Miniature Sun Press) also appears in the Poetry Collection category. (We trust that this will not lead to any unpleasantness in the Boston-Simon household.)

February 19 is accepting nominations for the annual Wooden Rocket Award for Online Science Fiction and Fantasy.
