Didn’t win. (The NYC Simulcast was fun, though.) But I’m honestly not put out about that, because — as I’d been telling people for the past few days — I know and like something like 5 of the 7 nominees in the short story category personally, and I thought most of the stories up for award were phenomenal (haven’t read two of them yet, though), so I don’t mind losing in this situation. Some great writers did win, like Kij Johnson (my category) and Paolo Bacigalupi and Eugie Foster, and I just can’t feel bad about that.

Besides… next year, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms will be eligible for the novel category. Hmmmmm?

Congrats to all the winners!

  1. Well, sorry to hear you didn’t win. But it seems as a great feat to be nominated. So congrats on being nominated and being there. The book is well deserving of the award. Best of luck next year though.
