Older Writers Grant Winner Chosen (almost me)

The Speculative Literature Foundation has been announced the winner of the 2009 Older Writers Grant – the name will be announced June 1.

More important (at least to me), my story RepFix received an Honorable Mention.

We are also delighted to inform you that your submission, “RepFix,” has been selected as one of five Honorable Mentions for the 2009 Older Writers Grant.

We enjoyed your story very much, especially the plausible depiction of what near-future technology can be. Ten years from now, we can see some of the seedier celebrities whose careers would be ended by questionable or gray lifestyle preferences paying for something like this.
