I wrote about it on Facebook the other day. Jonathan Strahan has picked up “The Vaporization Enthalpy of a Peculiar Pakistani Family” for The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year: Vol 9.
It’s my first appearance in a Year’s Best, and more importantly, far as I know, the first time a Pakistani writer has appeared in any Year’s Best anthology. Which makes me happy. Growing up, I yearned to see desi names in Year’s Best anthos and could hardly find any from Asia, let alone Indo-Pakistan. That is changing happily. And well. . . here we are. I’m told the anthology will be out in May from Solaris Books.
Thank you all who liked and spread word about this story. It means a lot.
