2008 Locus Award Finalists

Congratulations to Elizabeth Bear for her story “Tideline” (Asimov’s April/May 2007) – a finalist in the short story category.

Chalcedony wasn’t built for crying. She didn’t have it in her, not unless her tears were cold tapered glass droplets annealed by the inferno heat that had crippled her.

Such tears as that might slide down her skin over melted sensors to plink unfeeling on the sand. And if they had, she would have scooped them up, with all the other battered pretties, and added them to the wealth of trash jewels that swung from the nets reinforcing her battered carapace.

You can see the rest of the finalists here.
