On behalf of Serving House Journal, I'm so pleased to announce that Yahia Lababidi's essay, "Meditation on Murder," was chosen as a finalist for the 2011 Best of the Net awards, sponsored by Sundress Publications. The essay appears in Issue 2 (Fall 2010) of SHJ.
The 2011 Best of the Net Anthology is available online by clicking on the general headers of Poetry, Fiction, and Nonfiction, and then on individual entries within the lists.
As the Best of the Net website says, "This project continues to promote the diverse and growing collection of voices that are publishing their work online, a venue that still sees little respect from such yearly anthologies as the Pushcart and Best American series. This collection serves to bring greater respect to an innovative and continually expanding medium in the same medium in which it is published."
If you've not had an opportunity yet to read Lababidi's thoughtful, and thought-provoking, essay, I hope you will soon. And I hope you'll agree that it's one of the finest pieces of writing you'll find anywhere, not just on the Web!
