"Watching the Door"
The short story "Watching the Door" by Joel and F.I. Goldhaber* won third place in the 2016 Baen Fantasy Adventure Award.

The third annual award recognizes "the best piece of original short fiction that captures the spirit and tradition of such great storytellers as Larry Correia, Eric Flint, Robert E. Howard, Mercedes Lackey, Elizabeth Moon, Andre Norton, J.R.R. Tolkien and David Weber."

The award was accepted at Gen Con "in memory of Bev and Jerry Goldhaber, F.I.'s parents, who supported and encouraged us both in our writing endeavors."
