Also, Jenny Barber placed “The Drowned Man” on her list of recommended “funky stories” of 2013 (and I’m not sure I can tell you how tickled I am to have that story termed “funky”–I love that word).

There’s a lot of good stuff on those lists, as well, so if you’re looking for things to read …
1 They currently have it listed as a short story (with a star! woot!), but I have let them know it falls under the “novelette” category. [back]
