I’ve now seen the full ratings list (PDF) for the February issue. My book got the only “Gold” rating in the whole issue.
While I’m on the subject of RT, they interviewed me! It will show up in their March issue, paired with the interview of another Brooklyn-based author; RT is giving the borough a little love. A sample from the interview:
3. Why didn’t you set your books in the borough?
Because I mostly write secondary-world (i.e., “not Earth”) fantasy and science fiction! And really, I have a nasty habit of destroying the worlds in which I write. You don’t want me to do that to Brooklyn, do you?
Seriously, though, I might do a novel in Brooklyn someday. There’s a lot of magic and emotion here.
That one was fun to do.
