For all who wished they could have gone to the National Book Festival last fall, here, through the magic of technology, are the speeches, including mine. For all who went and regretted not being able to see all the writers they wanted to see, it's even better.

According to, Paladin of Souls is on the Preliminary Ballot for the 2005 Nebula Awards.

Congratulations, Lois!

(From info at shsilver is one of the organizers this year.)

Cool! Although, actually, PoS made the prelim list a few months back. I don't think that gets circulated outside SFWA till after a nominating year closes, though.

Note, this is only the preliminary ballot. One's book is not a "Nebula nominee" until the final ballot is chosen. That won't be for a month or two.

That said, what a startlingly small slate of preliminary novel nominees this year! Usually it's more like 20 books. I guess none of my colleagues had time to read much last year, either.

Ta, L.
