Okay, just hang on

I love you, bookslut, but I refuse to be a fern! If the guys in your metaphor are going to be lions and tigers, I demand to be a baobab. *plants flag, or rather extremely large tree*

Empire of Ivory: not quite done yet, so I am not allowed to embroil myself further in all the exciting debate. Oh, how I love you, thirty-day grace period.

Thank you all so much for the congratulations and encouragement -- there really is no better fuel for writing than knowing that people want to read what I am working on, and in the end, that is what is best about the Hugos or any other award.

Speaking of which, I have just learned that M. Rickert's collection Map of Dreams has won the IAFA's Crawford Award for first fantasy novel, for which Temeraire was also nominated. Many congratulations, Mary! So if you are looking for more great sff by women, I suggest checking out her book, and also the many terrific Nebula nominees. For more sff by Japanese writers, here's the Wikipedia page on the past Seiun Award winners. Does anyone have recommendations for other resources that might have links, esp to translated works, or a list of this year's nominees (if it has been released yet)?

And, now that Norwescon 30 is over, it's public that I'm going to be the Special Guest (it gets capital letters on the website and makes me think of the Doubtful Guest) at Norwescon 31 next year, with the theme Bell, Book, and Dragon. I am all excited at the prospect, especially as I have never been to Seattle before. Hope to get to see a whole bunch of you there!
