Really pleased to see Robert Charles Wilson's "The Cartesian Theater" as a finalist for the Theodore Sturgeon Awards, especially gratifying since it originally debuted in my own anthology, FutureShocks. Also good to see Ian McDonald's "The Djinn's Wife," Paolo Bacigalupi's excellent, "Yellow Card Man, and Benjamin Rosenbaum's "The House Beyond Your Sky." Congrats to everyone, of course, those are just the stories I've read. And good stories they were. I certainly couldn't pick between them.
