So they tell me that my story “Pericles the Tyrant” has won the 2006 Sidewise Award for excellence in alternate history, short form. I suppose I ought to mention this.
An excellent story that deserved notice.
Yes, you ought to. And I ought to congratulate you.
You know, in a meeting at a previous job my employer told us never to use more than three exclamation points a year. This page shows some serious investment.
!!! That’s fantastic news, Lois.
When were the Sidewise Awards?
I have been here at Worldcon, departing in the am, but due to my ear surgery last week have been disoriented in the sense of not remembering what is going on when.
Thanks to everyone.
The ceremony was Friday morning. Steve Silver called me with the news.
I was also glad to see the MacLeod novel win.
Chiming in late: congratulations, Lois.
Well-deserved, Lois! Congratulations!
My heartiest, earnestest, sincerest congrats, Lois!
Lois, that’s excellent! Congratulations!!
Good for you! Hope there are plenty more to follow.
Thanks for the good wishes, everyone. The award makes a real nice capstone to my author career.
But this is certainly my last award, as “Pericles” was my last story.
