Arvies: A Moment of Shameless Self-Promotion by one of the Co-Contributors of This Here Blog

More remake essays are coming. We promise.

In the interim I call your attention to my short story  “Arvies”, published in Lightspeed Magazine in August 2010, which received an unusual number of stunned reviews at the time, which has been chosen for Rich Horton’s year’s best science fiction anthology, and which is right now collecting citations for the Hugo and Nebula short story ballots. If you haven’t seen it, you really oughta. It’s a mind-blaster.

Here, for your edification, is the first paragraph.

“STATEMENT OF INTENT

This is the story of a mother, and a daughter, and the right to life, and the dignity of all living things, and of some souls granted great destinies at the moment of their conception, and of others damned to remain society’s useful idiots.”

That’s “Arvies.” Click the link above, and boggle.
