I won an AnLab Award!
Analog is one of the oldest, most prestigious SF magazines
I've been awarded the 2014 Analytical Laboratory award for Best Fact Article for my piece, "Lockstep: A Possible Galactic Empire," first published in May, 2014. You can read up about the awards and the full listing of recipients here.
This award might not be well known outside SF circles, but for me, it's huge. Analog is, after all, the quintessential Golden Age SF magazine, first appearing as Astounding in the 1930s. This is the magazine famously edited by John W. Campbell, who shepherded the careers of people like Isaac Asimov and another southern Manitoban SF writer from the Mennonite community, A.E. van Vogt. Many of the most prominent names in science fiction had their first publications in Analog. To be honoured with an award from this magazine fulfills one of my bucket-list dreams.
