Spar, by award-winning SF writer Kij Johnson, has garnered another major award nomination.
In February, it made the 2010 Nebula short list. Two weeks ago, it was named a 2010 Hugo nominee. Yesterday, it was among the other great SF stories nominated for a 2010 Locus award.
Spar is a dynamite story, it knocked my socks off when I first read it at Clarkesworld, but it’s not for the faint of heart. I suggest that you check it out, but fair warning now. It contains graphic language and explicit sexual scenes.
