Rochita Loenen-Ruiz's "The Song Of The Body Cartographer" Shortlisted at the BSFA Awards

I am so pleased and so happy to announce--rather belatedly, but better late than never--that Rochita Loenen-Ruiz's PGS story, "The Song Of The Body Cartographer", is shortlisted at the British Science Fiction Association Awards. It is a wonderful story, and for those of you who haven't read it yet, head on over now and spare it some of your time. Rochita herself shares some of her thoughts about the nomination.

Would it be boastful of me to say I am so proud of all the praise this story is getting? If so, forgive me, but ever since the announcement I haven't stopped smiling, and I've been talking about it with my relatives and friends incessantly. I hope I'm not driving them nuts (but I probably am).

PGS has ceased to publish for a bit now, but this is only a temporary stop as I deal with some personal matters with regard to my work and my family, matters that need my undue attention for the moment. That, plus--and this is something you will have to bear with me as a given--I will always spare some of my time for the major tennis tournaments: Wimbledon, the French Open, the U.S. Open, and the ongoing Australian Open. Whatever passion I have for reading, for stories, for books, is equally rivaled by the enjoyment I get for tennis. Call it a fatal flaw. So, I know that my work and family issues are very valid (and personal) reasons for the stop, but you will have to accept that tennis, for me, is just as valid (and personal). Hehe.

Thank you very much, Rochita, for sharing your story with genre readers through PGS. I am so glad for you, and glad that PGS could be the publisher of your tale.

Stay tuned, folks! The winner will be announced by the BSFA in about three months!
