I’m very tickled!  I’ve received a letter that I’ve been given a honorable mention for a short story called “Honolulu Hottie”, a Hawaiian cyberpunk story about a security guard who gets mixed up with a woman (the hottie) who is conducting corporate espionage to out a company that conspires to manipulate the pineapple market.

What is Writers of the Future?  They are an organization that uses the late L. Ron Hubbard’s money to hold a contest every quarter.  It’s open only open to amateur writers, i.e. writers who haven’t broke into pro-sales.  According to their rules, I’m right on the edge and will likely lose eligibility in the next twelve months.  So my fingers are crossed that I’ll get a “W” in the next few quarters because the purse is a cool three grand.
