Recommendations and happy news

Fellow Writers of the Future 26 winner Tom Crosshill has an excellent story in this month's edition of Light Speed Magazine. "Mama, We are Zhenya, Your Son" features quantum strangeness as seen through the eyes of a Russian child caught up in a sinister experiment. I warmly recommend it for those who enjoy mind-bending scientific concepts fused with good, human-level storytelling. That and it's completely free online!

Also, Tyler Carter, the extremely talented illustrator who did the fantastic artwork for my WOTF26 story "Lisa with Child," has won another major award and gotten to make a second trip to Hollywood. This time to meet with A-list celebrities and receive some well-earned accolades for a big accomplishment: Namely winning a Student Emmy for his gorgeous BYU CGI short film, DreamGiver.

Tyler had already interned with two major animation studios prior to this achievement, so it's safe bet that you will be seeing more of his work on the screens of movie theaters in the coming years.
