  1. James Davis Nicoll: Deserves a Mae West-style response: “Is that a walled city in your pants, or are you just glad to see me?”

  2. Congratulations to both authors and to Sam Green.

    I’ve read the Brian Staveley book and it’s a very respectable debut. It doesn’t offer many surprises in terms of worldbuilding – it’s straight-up modern fantasy – but it’s certainly well-crafted.

  3. The Emperors Blades was quite silly.
    Surly men (and women) flying about on giant kestrels.
    I should get an award for finishing it.

  4. Those are some mighty fine looking awards, I have to say.

    What did you think all the tea was for?
