Last year was the first year I made a living from writing: a mix of reviews, articles, games, poetry and fiction. It still feels pretty incredible.

I had four short stories appear in 2014. Here they are:

"Mon pays c'est l'hiver," Lackington's Magazine
"The Rag Man Mulls Down the Day," PodCastle (audio only)
"The Lonely Sea in the Sky," Lightspeed, Women Destroy Science Fiction
"The Truth About Owls," Kaleidoscope: Diverse YA Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories (link is to reprint at Strange Horizons)

Of those, I'm personally proudest of "The Lonely Sea in the Sky" and "The Truth About Owls." Both were incredibly difficult to write; both felt like a sort of levelling up to me personally; both would have been impossible without the support of incredible editors, loving friends and family members. "The Lonely Sea in the Sky" is my first science fiction story, and the difficulties I had with writing it are documented.

The only poem of mine that appeared last year was "The New Ways" in Uncanny Magazine. But speaking of poetry!

Goblin Fruit is eligible for a Hugo award in the Best Semiprozine category.

Here are some things about Goblin Fruit. Here are some more things: this is our ninth year of operations, of putting out four issues a year of what I consider truly spectacular work. This year, beginning with our next issue, we're raising our rates to $10 a poem.

I don't think an all-poetry journal has ever been on the Hugo ballot. But it genuinely fulfils all the requirements for the category, and last year, according to the vote break-down, it was VERY CLOSE to actually getting on the ballot. So if you've been loving it for a while but haven't ever considered it because Hugo rules are complicated, know that it is eligible! Whether or not it is worthy is of course up to you.
