Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] benpayne for this link... Rich Horton, editor of many a "Year's Best" anthology, listed his favourite stories of 2006 here:

http://www.blackgate.com/articles/years_best_06.htm

And no, I don't make the list, but I do snag a mention...

That's 50 stories, four more than the past two years, but I read rather more. That's just over 3% of the short stories I read this year. Stories by Brian Attebery, Ken Scholes, D. J. Cockburn, Will McIntosh, Samantha Henderson, Julian West, Theodora Goss, Charles Saplak, Kiel Stuart, Ian Watson, Kit Reed, Michael Swanwick, Susanna Clarke, Steven Popkes, Ken Altabef, Robert Reed, Tony Richards, Richard Parks, William Alexander, Cat Sparks, Carrie Vaughn, Amanda Downum, Cat Rambo, Michael Humfrey, Anna Tambour, and Martin Livings were also close to the list.

So that's kinda cool. No, wait, what's the word I'm looking for? Oh yeah. Awesome. :) Congrats to the other Aussies getting a mention as well, including [livejournal.com profile] margolanagan, whose story "A Fine Magic" from Eidolon 1 was actually listed, plus of course Anna and [livejournal.com profile] catsparx in the near-misses above.

I do wonder, though, which story of mine caught Rich's eye. I really only had one original story out last year ("Dwar7es", on Ticonderoga Online). Was it that one? Or did he catch one in another "Best Of", like "Running" or "Hooked"? And what is my obsession with one-word story titles? I need to write something with a longer title. :)
