Congratulations to Paul Melko – first book accepted!

June 9, 2006

Paul Melko has had his first book accepted. kayleigh and I met Paul and his very pretty (and at the time, very pregnant) wife Stacy at the Chicago Nebula Awards a couple of years ago. We had seen him on a panel the previous fall at Context along Connie Willis, Nancy Kress, and Maureen McHugh, but had not spoken to him before. We chatted with he and his wife a couple of times during the SFWA weekend. I remember Stacy was also kind enough to return me the Swiss Army knife that fell out of my pocket during a panel. We ran into Stacy again at the next Context where Paul was assisting Charles Coleman Finlay and Tobias Buckell with a writing workshop. Paul has had numerous short stories published, including the recent novalla “The Walls of the Universe” in Asimov’s April/May 2006 issue. Congratulations to Paul.
