So apparently I just won the Rhysling award for best short poem. "The Library, After", published in Mythic Delirium.

I... what?

Is this?

The guys assure me that this actually did just happen.

Um, I'll be reading it today at my reading! 2:30! And 2nd-place winner cucumberseed is reading his poem "The Lend" at my request, so in the absence of an official Rhysling Awards reading, here we go!

I need to eat breakfast! More later. But I won an award, you guys. I'm still puzzled.

Woo hoo! Congratulations!!!

I am not puzzled. I am instead concerned that you don't have all the awards. It speaks poorly to the quality I modern judges. ;)

Well, my best work is yet ahead of me! (Seriously, Cicatrix is my best work so far.)
15th-Jul-2012 04:20 pm (UTC)
Well Congratulations are in order then!

No less than you deserve. ;-)

But congratulations anyway.

Congratulations! (I feel like adding more exclamation points to that "!!!!") This is seriously awesome!

Hey that's awesome! Well done :-)

Mazel tov!

Shouldn't be puzzled. It's a great poem. Although, to be fair, I actually voted for your OTHER one, which I thought was immeasurably cool. Congrats!
16th-Jul-2012 02:38 pm (UTC)
Thanks! (I think "The Changeling's Lament" is stronger, too! My husband reminds me that they're in different categories and thus weren't competing against each other. It was a very strong year for long poem!)

SQUEE!! =:o>

And I'm delighted & intrigued enough just from finding snippets in a couple of brief online reviews, that I think I could maybe skip a meeal to get a copy of the magazine, just to read the poem...

Well congratulations!

I'm not puzzled. Not puzzled at all. *squeehugs*

That's kind of like THE award for SFF poetry, right?

The one and only, so far; it's our Hugo and Nebula all rolled into one. :)

I haven't yet congratulated you on this!

Congrats! I'd read your tweet about it earlier -- and I thought you were referencing a dessert wine. :) Reisling is also tasty, but probably not as hard to come by.
