IGMS's Tim Pratt One in A Million

The storySouth 2007 Million Writers Award for Fiction

As many of you know, storySouth (, presents a list each year of what it considers to be the best short stories published on-line. A handful of preliminary judges pick the Notable Stories of the Year, and then the senior editors pick what they consider to be the top ten stories of the year. I was pleased when four stories published in 2006 in InterGalactic Medicine Show were named to the list of Notable Stories, so you can imagine my thoughts when I learned that Tim Pratt’s “Dream Engine” (the cover story for issue three), was named one of the top ten.

The entire list is as follows (yes, I put Tim’s at the top where it belongs (not that I’m biased)):

•"Dream Engine" by Tim Pratt (Intergalactic Medicine Show)

•"A Letter from Home" by E. C. Osondu (Agni)

•"Spectral Evidence" by Gemma Files (ChiZine)

•"Urchins, While Swimming" by Catherynne M. Valente (Clarkesword Magazine)

•"13 Halloweens" by Michael K. White (The Deepening)

•"All the Way to Grangeville" by A. Ray Norsworthy (Eclectica Magazine)

•"Burning Bush" by E.P.Chiew (In Posse Review)

•"Vertically Divided, Blue-Red-White" by Mark MacNamara (Southern Gothic Online)

•"Spinning Out" by Jamie Barras (Strange Horizons)

•"The Infinite Monkey Theorem" by Marshall Moore (Word Riot)

You may now proceed directly to storySouth's website to vote for Tim's story...
