Lois Tilton at Locus Online was lukewarm regarding my “Stereogram” piece, but when my story “Small Burdens” came out in Strange Horizons back in March, she gave it a “Recommended.”  The other day, in her year-end wrap-up, she called it one of her three favorite Strange Horizons stories of the year:

Strange Horizons, now on its second decade, is one of the oldest surviving ezines. My picks are the dystopian “The Bright and Shining Parasites of Guiyu” by Grady Hendrix, “Small Burdens” by Paul M Berger, and “The Night Train” by Lavie Tidhar.

In this post I explained a bit about where the story came from.
