I'm totally delighted for Kirstyn too! I don't think I have contact info for her but that story was on my short list. It's terrific.

I'll point her here. :)

And congratulations on The Goosle, as well. It's high on my list of to-read, outside of slush + reviews...
(Frozen) (Parent) (Thread)

Thank you. It's a brutal one--go and read it.
(Frozen) (Parent) (Thread)

It's definitely a great story. The great news for Kirstyn is that she just signed a two book deal with Picador. So 2009 has been a great yeat for her :)

Fantastic for her. Can someone pass on her email address to me so I can congratulate her personally?
(Frozen) (Parent) (Thread)

Thanks--I'm emailing her now.

Congratulations to the good folk at GUD. Considering it's a small press mag not readily available in Australia, it did really well to score enough votes!
(Frozen) (Parent) (Thread)

Thanks! :) We're doing our best to be readily available, but yes. :) Which reminds me... I have a box I need to get out to Australia Monday!

Congratulations, Ellen! Good to see The Goosle get some rewards after all the controversy! :-)

Thanks. It makes ME happy :-)
