I believe Meghan McCarron's "Swift, Brutal Retribution" is on the list too, under Novelette.

Read "About Fairies" only a couple weeks ago, and I have to say it is so well-deserved. Perhaps I don't read enough fantasy short stories or urban fantasy, but it really felt like a story of our times rather than the weird old time-y feeling most fantasy gives me.

God, is that what the cover looks like? They mail it out in a transparent envelope. God knows what the postie's going to think when my next issue finally shows up.

Someone missed the novelette category entirely. Paul Cornell and Elizabeth Bear should be here as well.
