loose tea for loose women

we went to have ourselves a drink or two but couldn't find an open bar

I woke up to very good news this morning. Chill is on the Philip K. Dick award shortlist, along with these other fine novels:

  • Yarn, Jon Armstrong (Night Shade Books)
  • The Reapers Are The Angels, Alden Bell (Henry Holt & Co.)
  • Song Of Scarabaeus, Sara Creasy (Eos)
  • The Strange Affair Of Spring Heeled Jack, Mark Hodder (Pyr)
  • Harmony, Project Itoh, translated by Alexander O. Smith (Haikasoru)
  • State Of Decay, James Knapp (Roc)

Kind of a thrill!

Now I need to see if I have the gumption to take the dog for a walk before the snow turns into rain icy death falling from the sky. Maybe we'll just do yoga today. It could get ugly out there fast.



w00t! Congrats! :-)
I got your iceday right here.


Oh yeah. When I get close to the end, every chapter seems to turn into two, and then every scene turns into two...
I get that too, and I'm not even published. Doesn't matter how well planned the plot is; it always takes at least 4k more words than I projected to plausibly end the bloody thing. It's like a sickness, I tell you.
Congratulations and best of luck.
Yay! Congratulations!
Thank you! And congrats to you, too!

also - oh my goodness Surprise!DanFogelberg
Mwahahahahaha. Sorry about the earworm. but having done it to myself, I needed to share.

the snow turned into rain

Ha, someone identified it before I could post a comment!

And congratulations! Something else to throw at the SuckMonkey!
That's wonderful: congratulations.
Congratulations! :-)
Good show!

Does this mean you'll be coming to Seattle?

It just wouldn't do for you to win and not be there to collect your award in person. Congradulations!
Woo! And even Hoo!
Woo hoo! PKD is cheering. :D

I'm still struggling with a tendency to blame Chill for not being Dust (which is among the most wonderful of your works, to me, aside from the Man of Stratford ones); but I think when I have read all three I won't have this difficulty any more.

I find it really wonderful that I can't predict at ALL which of my books people will love.

And thank you.

Wishing you luck with the Philip K. Dick award. That would definitely be a cool accolade indeed.
Congratulations! I'm really looking forward to re-reading Chill in preparation for Grail, because my recent re-read of Dust was so captivating.
Congrats, Bear. :-)
