In all seriousness, I’m very, very jazzed that Shadow has been nominated. I really did have (too much) fun writing this particular book, and this is all the better because several people I call friends also have works on the list. I’m in some august company, including within the “Speculative Novel Original” category. Congratulations to all the nominees, and thanks so much to the judges who deemed the book worthy of nomination, and to the IAMTW and its membership for continuing to push for excellence within the field.
Kinda makes me want to get on with writing a sequel, too.
