  1. Yudhanjaya W: Re: Messenger: we set up an epub and mobi on a gDrive folder for the SWFA reading list.

    Thanks, the link has been added.

  2. I’ve never even heard of most of these.

    Although my Hugo list so far does include MRK, Murderbot, “Only Harmless”, “Detective/Tea Master”, “Black Panther”, “Dirty Computer” AND, the thing I really really really must insist y’all put down for the Lodestar (drum roll):

    Peasprout Chen.

    A delight for all ages, genders, orientations, and races (but esp. Chinese people, who will get the jokes that went past my barbarian self). If you enjoy Oor Wombat, you’ll like this*. Deeply heartfelt, great action, intrigue, and, um… I liked it better than Harry Potter.

    I have the Kindle AND the paperback, the Kindle of #2, and can’t wait for #3.

    *Example: one of the teachers picks up extra money by having her trained flock of parrots sky-write the local tabloid headlines over the city. As one does.

  3. Lise Andreasen: There’s a problem with the link to the witch short story.

    Thanks, Lise, it should be fixed now. 🙂
