I am a very happy to say that my novelette "The Way of the Needle," which  appreared in the March, 2012 issue of Asimov's Science Fiction, has just won the  2012 Asimov's Reader's Award.  This award is chosen by the magazine's readers  and is a bit humbling, given that the other novelettes published by Asimov's in  2012 were written by such brilliant writers as Allen Steele, Megan Lindholm,  Paul MacAuley, Ken Liu, Rudy Ruckers, Indrapramit Das, Rick Wilbur, Robert Reed, and many others.  I received the award this morning from Sheila Williams in San Jose, California. Thank you to the readers of Asimov's for picking my story among so many great ones!  I'm very grateful.
