and nominees, all of whom can be found here, especially

  • Kate Bernheimer & Carmen Gimenez Smith, editors of the new fairy tale anthology My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me. Kate’s Fairy Tale Review remains a flagship in the field.
  • my Clarion teacher Liz Hand, who took Best Novella  with “The Maiden Flight of McCauley’s Bellerophon” (in Stories: All-New Tales), part of which she read to us two years ago at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego, during the Workshop,

“As you may see, I am not here, but just now, at this exact moment I am in Rosario, very far away from here but thinking of you all, and I wonder: what are they thinking now? Are they happy to be here? Yes.I know you are, and then, of course, I am happy too. And I feel immensely grateful. This Award is very important to me. It comes to my hands at the right moment. At eighty–three years old, I can count so many blessings: my husband, my sons, my daughter, my grandsons and my granddaughter, and my accomplices: the words I put in my thirty books of narrative. As Jorge Luis Borges once said, I am  condemned to Spanish words. And I am trying to say in my poor English that I feel happy and joyful and that I send you my love and my gratitude. Thank you.”
