  1. I’ve read one of those, The Calculating Stars. It was a freebie at Norwescon, as was the sequel. They’re good, but I had trouble continuing reading in the early parts.

  2. Congratulations to the nominees!

    Good to see Peter Watts’ The Freeze-Frame Revolution getting some love.

  3. Yes, I’m also delighted to see The Freeze-Frame Revolution getting some well-deserved recognition. It’s nice to see The Calculating Stars and Semiosis on there, too.
