ETA: Oh, and arcaedia says that Hammered/Scardown/Worldwired and "Wax" made the Locus recommended list this year. Along with a WHOLE BUTTLOAD of people I really like and admire, and am not even going to try to list here. (Congratulations, the lot of you!)
Also, Asha's mom and dad fed me a very good dinner.
Really, all in all, I cannot complain.
