'Victoria Chase' shortlists in the Aeon Award 2013

My fantasy-steampunk hybrid short story, 'Victoria Chase', was shortlisted in the First Round of the Aeon Award (an international speculative fiction award run from Ireland by Albedo One magazine) in 2013. It's been a long wait to see if it would be chosen as one of the final 6, from a list of 32 stories over the four rounds of the competition. It wasn't, but it was still encouraging to get this far (for a third time)!

An excerpt from 'Victoria Chase', and a link to the full shortlist and other details of the Aeon Award, can be found at my blog here.
