Seiun Award nomination

My most successful ever short story 'Singing My Sister Down' is up for a Seiun Award(Best Foreign Language Short Story), which is voted on by people who go to the Japan Science Fiction Convention in July. The collection it's from, Black Juice, was translated by Chiori Sada and published by Kawade Shobo Shinsha, in May 2008.
