I was teaching my regular Tuesday morning class today when my sci-fi-fantasy-fan-student Jason told me he saw my work in SPECTRUM 15 which just came out. I had no idea what he was talking about. So he went back to his dorm room to get a copy. This is how I found out They Came From Below cover for TOR BOOKS (written by Blake Nelson, AD: Irene Gallo) got accepted into the annual. Thank you Irene for applying, you made my day.
