The Year of Matthew Johnson
I'm always super-proud when my writing students do well, so let me tell you about Matthew Johnson:
Matthew had his first novel published in 2009: Fall from Earth was issued by Bundoran Press, the wonderful publishing house in Prince George, BC, run by Virginia O'Dine.
And Matthew also had a great short story published last year: "The Coldest War" (Asimov's SF, February 2009), which you can read online here.
Both Fall from Earth and "The Coldest War" are eligible for the Hugo and Aurora Awards -- and nominations are open now.
(Matthew was my writing student at the University of Toronto in 2005.)
