Dancing Through the Fire publication day

It's release day for Dancing Through the Fire (and yes, I know Saturday is an odd day to do a book release, but today would have been author Tanith Lee's 68th birthday). I think I've said all I ought to about the book, but I do want to point out Publishers Weekly's review, which points to "the stunning new piece 'Burn Her,' in which a dead painter's right arm refuses to either stop painting or succumb to fire," calling it "Lee's graceful acknowledgement and defiance of her own mortality, a very high point" in this collection. That novelette is the story that caught my eye when I was first reading and editing the book, and I commend it to you. I don't normally talk about awards, especially not to recommend works for consideration for the various awards, but in this case, I want to make an exception. Tanith died much too early, and apparently with more yet to say. I hope that those of you who do make a habit of recommending/nominating stories for the various awards for which they're eligible will consider the novelette "Burn Her." Thank you.
