Great News

...and we interrupt our regular programming to bring you a news flash.
BSFA (British Science Fiction Association) preliminary 2008 award nominations for non-fiction includes:
"How to Burn a Chicken – Using Astronomy for Worldbuilding” by Sheila Crosby (in Escape Velocity, vol 1 issue 2)
I haven't been able to confirm this yet, but the unconfirmed report made my day.

Good luck - when do you hear for certain?

I haven't the foggiest idea when the voting happens. Things have been so busy that I haven't had time to find out.

I've just found out that I didn't make the short list. But it was a delightful surprise to get as far as I did.

The winner will be announced on Saturday 11th April 2009, at Eastercon. May the best article win (since I'm out of the running!)
