Bulgarian writer Zdravka Evtimova has received another recognition for her talent in the USA. An online platform for discussing science fiction, fantasy and horror literature has awarded her short story "For Dimitar - a Poet" as Best Short Story With Science Fiction Elements.

"For Dimitar - A Poet" received the largest number of votes from science fiction writers and readers on the Critters Annual Readers Poll.

This is not the first recognition for Zdravka Evtimova in the United States. In 2019, another work of hers, "The Blood of the Mole," was included in an anthology of recommended stories for teaching literature in American high schools.
