Or does it just seem that way because we're old?

I didn't write a story in 1992, but I did have a baby, and if she made me a grandmother this year no one would think that she was on the young side.

Please explain why this would be of interest. In what way does the publication dates of their work have relevancy to the position they may hold @ SFWA?

I'm 39. The first was two years after my birth, Tansy's the year after I cast my first vote in a national election, the most recent 8 years ago when I still lived in Devon, I've moved across the country twice since then, and lost three jobs.

So it depends on what you compare it to, but it might just indicate you're getting even older mate ;-)

Eugene's debut novel was Fair Coin (as E.C. Myers). Not sure about short fiction.
