Strange Horizons poll results are in

The Strange Horizons readers’ poll results are in.

“Ranra’s Unbalancing” placed first in the poetry category.
“Long Shadow” placed second in the poetry category.
My folkloristics essay “The Uses and Limitations of the Folklorist’s Toolkit for Fiction” shares first place with “Gender, Sex, and Sexuality in SF: A Conversation” by Polenth Blake and Bogi Tak√°cs.
And I came second in the Columns category; I did not even know I was competing.

This is a bit overwhelming. I don’t quite know how to hold this.

Thank you very much to everyone who voted and engaged with my work; and, as always, to the Strange Horizons team. The magazine had a terrific year, and I’m very much looking forward to 2016.

CONGRATULATIONS to all of the winners!
