it's always darkest before the dawn.

And to complete my heaviest blogging day in years, I think, a couple of cool things!



First off, Kirkus starred review of Steles of the Sky!!

Spoilers for the whole freaking series, so be cautious of your clickthrough. But the takeaway makes it all worthwhile:

Considering the trilogy as a whole,
the overused term masterpiece justifiably applies.


*mic drop*

The other cool thing is that two audio anthologies I was part of are nominated for Audie Awards!

One is Rip Off!, edited by Gardner Dozois, featuring a suite of stories that borrow their first line from a classic work. (Mine is from Christopher Marlowe's Edward II. ;) )The other is METAtropolis III: Green Space, edited by Jay Lake and Ken Scholes--third in a series of shared-world anthologies about a possible adaptive, non-apocalyptic future for Earth and the human race.

They are both nominated for the Best Anthology Award. So I'm competing against myself, and the best bit is that Mary Robinette Kowal is also in both. Maybe she can win one and I can win... crap, that won't work. :(

Oh, and the best bit is, That Boy I Like is nominated for the best audiobook in the Fantasy category for The Republic of Thieves, along with reader Michael Page!

I think this calls for another Fizzgig. :-D

(I am always glad for an excuse to use this icon, and you have given me several!)

What a great concept and a great choice! Is there a print version of this anthology, or audio only?
Audio only, so far.
Yay!
Yay! Those are wonderful pieces of news and well-deserved. Go, Bear!
SQUEE!
I am very much looking forward to Steles of the Sky! Huzzah!

I do not think Kirkus is wrong on the masterpiece thing for this series.
