“Healing Benjamin” on Nebula Suggested Reading list

I was flattered to learn that “Healing Benjamin” in the August Realms of Fantasy has been placed on the Nebula Suggested Reading list under “Novelettes.”  For those unfamiliar with the term, that’s fiction 7500 to 17,500 words.  Shorter makes it a short story; longer, a novella (until it hits 40K and turns novel).  “Benjamin” weighs in at 8600 words.  He’s a big cat.  The story, inspired by a couple of beloved pets, has been getting quite a nice response, which pleases me no end.  Many thanks to 18-year-old Nyneve (cat) and 15-year-old Alice (dog) for all they taught me.  This one’s for you.
