One thought on “2015 Utopiales Awards Shortlists

  1. I have always liked Laurent Genefort the author of Lum’en but I have yet to pick this one up because they haven’t done an ebook and I refuse to pay $50 Canadian for a copy.

    Tried reading Thinking Eternity but found it tedious so I gave up on it. I haven’t read L’Autre Ville but it doesn’t sound like something I would enjoy.
