The Butcher of Khardov Nominated for Hugo Award

Cover: The Butcher of Khardov

Nominations for the Hugo Awards were announced this weekend, among them The Butcher of Khardov, written by Dan Wells and published by Skull Island Expeditions, an imprint of Privateer Press. I copyedited this novella, which is at once psychological, fantastical, and highly entertaining, in June of 2013. It’s an honor to have contributed to a project that fans enjoyed enough to nominate as one of only five contestants in the best novella category, alongside writers Charles Stross, Brad Torgersen, Catherynne M. Valente, Andy Duncan, and Ellen Klages, who appeared in publications such as Analog and Tor.com.

Privateer Press’s fiction imprint, launched in 2013, is off to a breathtaking start. Congratulations to author Dan Wells, editor Darla Kennerud, and all the staff at Skull Island Expeditions. Go team!

Kudos

Hats off to sci-fi editor Erin Wilcox, whom I hired to copyedit my book. We got the highest marks on grammar in the competition. If anyone out there is looking for a copyeditor, I highly recommend Erin Wilcox.”
