Fantasy and science fiction and speculative fiction book reviews, author interviews, bestseller news, contests and giveaways, etc. Enjoy!
Actually, these are not "selections" as in "selected by a jury", but this is a voted award and anyone who wants CAN vote for it. Unlike e.g. the Hugos. You don't have to be a subscriber of Locus to do so. I voted in the awards and I am happy with the results, although I voted for Lynch in the best first novel category. I can understand why Novik won, though. I read her book as well and liked it well enough. Olaf
It looks like a pretty good list to me. In particular, I'm very pleased with Kushner's win in the best fantasy category. Terrific novel.I would have preferred Lynch to Novik, but Novik's first book is really very good, so I can't fault it one bit.
I have no problem with Naomi Novik winning the award. I loved her books, and I'm eager to read EMPIRE OF IVORY.Yet I'm aware that not everyone feels the way I do. . .
So you've got some plans to have a go at a few books in the list?? That's good! Phew.I don't remember you reviewing Kushner's novel and I'm surprised I haven't heard of it even in the UK. Will pick it up :DCheers, Chris.
