Sequel to “If at First You Don’t Succeed, Try, Try Again”

Update (May 2020): This short story sequel is no longer available online as I’m planning to self-publish a bundled ebook containing the original novelette and sequel. You can still read the original novelette for free here: If at First You Don’t Succeed, Try, Try Again. Thanks to everyone who supported it at the Hugos!

Towards the end of last year I wrote a short story as a coda to my novelette about a failboat imugi striving to be a dragon, which was sent out to subscribers to my new release mailing list. I’ve now posted it to my website and you can read it here!

Also I hear Hugo awards nominations are now open for 2018 publications! If you enjoyed If at First You Don’t Succeed, Try, Try Again, I’d be thrilled if you’d consider nominating it in the Best Novelette category. (My dream is to have a Hugo nomination in a year I’m actually likely to make it to Worldcon, so I have an excuse to bring a fancy outfit plus get to attend the Hugo Losers Party. But of course you must nominate as your heart directs, unswayed by my dreams of frivolity!)

  1. Those were both gorgeous beyond words. I’m not certain I can nominate anything for a Hugo, but I wish you the best of luck in that regard. You write amazing emotions inside me.

    • I’ve taken it down as I’m planning to self-publish the original novelette and sequel as a bundled ebook, but will update the link when the ebook’s up. Sorry for the confusion!
