  1. Simon Vance! Simon Vance!

    One of my all-time favorite narrators. Very happy to see him win his category. 🙂

  2. Locus Online reports the winners this morning — I know what they’re trying to do (list all the genre nominees, with the winners in red) but even knowing that, they still leave a strong impression of having reported the wrong Audiobook of the Year. If they had mentioned Hamilton in the introductory paragraph, that impression could have been avoided.
