Lezli Robyn & Mike Resnick were nominated for the Australian 2010 Aurealis Award for Best SF Short Story, for “Soulmates”, which first appeared in the September 2009 issue of Asimov’s Magazine. As the one of the juried judges said: “The authors weave themes of loss and friendship together well in this poignant tale about a man who has lost his wife and finds himself spending time discussing serious issues with a maintenance robot. The story uses dialogue very effectively to advance both plot and characterisation.”
