ENnie Award-winning writer

This is a repost from my own Livejournal:

The ENnie Awards are for excellence in role-playing and table top games and are voted on by fans. The 2009 ENnies were awarded Friday evening. Catalyst Game Labs had several entries this year, most involving CthulhuTech, but there were a few Shadowrun and BattleTech products in the finals -- including The Corps, an anthology of stories originally published during the first year of BattleCorps.
There is no fiction-specific ENnie Award, so fiction is grouped with books of artwork in the "Regalia" category.
Technically, the editor who assembled the anthology is the person who receives the award, so Loren L. Coleman won for The Corps.
But I feel I should point out he won by including two of my stories.

That would be Loren L. Coleman of Seattle, the science fiction writer, please note, not Loren Coleman of Portland, Maine, the cryptozoology writer.

Congratulations to him and those who were in his fictional anthology of writings.

Mr. Coleman -- Original entry has been updated to include the "L." Heck of a search engine you have there.

Lily, Helen, Debs, & Liz -- Thanks!
It seems a little strange being recognized in 2009 for stories published in 2004. And while I know awards voted for by peers and fellow professionals are more prestigious than "people's choice" or "fan" awards, when I think that tens of thousands of people vote on the ENnies each year, being even a small part of a winning team is humbling.

This is an anthology of military science fiction. Both my stories were about noncombatants caught in the violence.
"The Immortal Warrior at the Battle of Vorhaven" = When their farm becomes a battlefield a little girl draws strength from her favorite cartoon action hero as she braves giant war machines to rescue her brother. (One of my personal favorites.)
"McKenna Station" = Merchant marine midshipmen battle time and gravity in a desperate bid to escape becoming shooting stars when a damaged freighter crashes into their civilian space station during "space walk" training and knocks them out of orbit.

This anthology isn't on Amazon any more, no idea why. Anyone really interested in a pdf of either story, e-mail me and I'll send you one.
