It appears I am the winner. I am honored to be the recipient of the 2022 Gravity Award for my story “Before Concord.” I have always respected gravity, but never until now have I known that the feeling was mutual.
So, feel free to call me Mr. Gravity for the rest of 2022. Or Professor Gravity if that appeals to you more. On second thought, don’t call me that: a name like Professor Gravity suggests that I might actually understand gravity, and as my physics teacher said long ago, gravity is harder to understand than you think. Just keep calling me Joe.
Many thanks to Brad and Rob for their fine publication, Center Field of Gravity, which I hope you will check out.
