WSFA Small Press Award - Tansy Rayner Roberts' 2012 Acceptance Speech

I am delighted and overwhelmed to win this prize again. The 2010 trophy has pride of place on my bookshelf, and I really didn't expect to end up with a matching pair!
"The Patrician" is the story I am most proud of in my career to date. It wouldn't have been written without the support and encouragement of my publisher, Alisa Krasnostein who commissioned the Love and Romanpunk collection.
Thank you so much to the Washington Science Fiction Association for continuing to promote the importance of small press and short fiction in our genre.
