Weekend Getaway: Mary Robinette Kowal

I missed last week's Weekend Getaway while I was out in Denver. So this week, in honor of Worldcon and the awards bestowed upon people, we have a story from this year's Campbell Award winner, Mary Robinette Kowal.

There's already a post up today with an interview with Mary, but in case you haven't had the chance to read her fiction yet, this is a story from the June issue of Clarkesworld Magazine:

Clockwork Chickadee

If you enjoyed that, Mary has a link on her website to more of her online fiction.

Beautiful story! I love the imagery and humour and the dialog was so much fun to read aloud. I'd love to see it illustrated... I'm totally sold on her work.

I have the Chickadee and the nightingale, actually. My family has been collecting wind-up toys since my dad was little. The Sparrow... sadly, I was unable to afford the one I saw.

And I finally remember what that Dress reminded me of... it was on last night on TCM:
