I must admit I've not been into the StorySouth thing for a couple of years running, for a number of reasons I won't go into here, but this year's list of notables is especially reluhvant to mah innerests:
>killauthor made best new journal
Prick of the Spindle made runner up as best novella publisher
And these fine writers made the list:
Roxane Gay (with like, eleventy stories on the list)
I'm thrilled about how this shook out, and even if there are some sad omissions, this is the most exciting notables list in a long while.
