Congratulations to these poets with work from Mythic Delirium in contention for the 2011 Rhysling Awards:

    short poem category

  • Jennifer Crow, “We Took Our Gods”, Issue 21, January 2010
  • Lyn C. A. Gardner, “Midnight Posture”, Issue 23, Summer/Fall 2010
  • Shweta Narayan, “Cave-smell”, Issue 22, Winter/Spring 2010
  • Jane Yolen, “The Gospel of the Rope”, Issue 23, Summer-Fall, 2010.

    long poem category

  • F. J. Bergmann, “Occidental”, Issue 23, Summer-Fall 2010
  • C. S. E. Cooney, “Ere One Can Say It Lightens”, Issue 22, Winter/Spring 2010
  • Joshua Gage, “Rats”, Issue 22, Winter/Spring 2010
  • Jaime Lee Moyer, “Rain Face”, Issue 21, January 2010
  • Catherynne M. Valente, “Red Engines”, Issue 21, January 2010

Competitive editor's note. With nine nominations, that brings Mythic Delirium in at second, with Star*Line the leader at 11. Strange Horizons and Goblin Fruit tie for third at seven each. Newcomer Stone Telling lands five nominations with only two issues, makes me wonder what a full four issues worth of poems will do. The Mythic Delirium/Goblin Fruit score is muddled by the editor switch last year; as a result, I chose two of Amal'n'Jess's nominees and they chose three of mine: as editors, we apparently tie at eight nominees each. Hmmm....

Yay, congrats! As for ST, I am thrilled we got five nominations, but I am not sure what's going to happen next year; I have a feeling that most of our readers are not SFPA members.

And thank you for your kind words!
