Goat Heads an (Un)finalist for Starcherone Prize
I learned today that They Had Goat Heads is one of five finalists for the Starcherone Prize for Innovative Fiction. I had submitted an earlier version of the book for consideration in 2009 and didn't hear anything, so I assumed I had lost to Alissa Nutting's Unclean Jobs for Women & Girls, the 2009-10 winner. I didn't know Goat Heads was being considered for the 2010-11 prize. At any rate, I sold an expanded version to Atlatl Press earlier in 2010 and had to remove it from the finalist pool, rendering the book an "(Un)finalist for the Starcherone Prize in Innovative Fiction."
