Peter S. Beagle continues to shine...
More good news for Peter S. Beagle and his latest collection:
Amazon's book blog, Omnivoracious, selected Beagle's We Never Talk about My Brother as one four "Must-Have" story collections, describing Beagle as, "the kind of iconic American storyteller whose writing reflect[s] a kind of nuanced gentleness and nostalgia without being sentimental."
"The Tale of Junko and Sayuri" (go ahead, read it) was first collected in We Never Talk About My Brother (and first appeared in Intergalactic Medicine Show). Now it is on the ballot for the 2009 Million Writers Award. If you enjoyed the story (of course you did), please go vote for it.
