Today's reprint has particularly good timing! Lightspeed is running a story of mine that has never been available online before, Blue Ribbon. (It previously appeared in Analog and in Year's Best Young Adult Speculative Fiction.) Why is this good timing?

Well, for non-Americans, it's a story to enjoy on a Tuesday, okay, sure. For most Americans, it'll be something to ease you back into your work week after the Labor Day holiday weekend. Who could argue with that kind of timing? I hope you enjoy it!

But for those of you who are missing your State Fair now that it's over. For those of you who were 4H kids in particular. Yes, this is my story of 4H kids in space. It's not the perky tale of "and then I won the prize, hurray!" that that thumbnail might suggest, but I'm pretty proud of it all the same. And the day after the State Fair seems like just the right time for it to be more broadly available for the first time.
