The Bujold Nexus

April 2006

Subject: Or, with context...

I realize I could have said more in my last post. By the magic of cut'n paste, the whole slate for best fantasy novel in the Locus poll this year is:

Best Fantasy Novel

Anansi Boys, Neil Gaiman (Morrow; Review)
A Feast for Crows, George R.R. Martin (Voyager; Bantam Spectra)
The Hallowed Hunt, Lois McMaster Bujold (Eos)
Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town, Cory Doctorow (Tor)
Thud!, Terry Pratchett (Doubleday UK; HarperCollins)

I'm not quite sure why Neil is Morrow, I'm Eos, and Terry is HarperCollins; we all have the same purchasing editor... and a good one she is.

Note that the winner has already been chosen, merely not announced. They used to let that cat out of the bag earlier, but I believe have concluded that this system draws more interest.

The galleys for The Sharing Knife part 1: Beguilement arrived this morning. I now know what I'll be doing for the rest of this fine spring weekend...

Yes, spring has arrived in Minneapolis, rather abruptly, mid-week. The spring peepers in the s/w/a/m/p wetland park where I take my walks fired up suddenly Wednesday, when Monday there had still been ice on the water.

The galleys are very clean, so far. The peepers are very, er, ardent.
