Hate to seem to be blowing my own horn here, but I am rather excited that this series of posts has been nominated for an award this year in the Aussie version of the Hugos, the Ditmars (not quite as prestigious as the Hugos, of course) and I wanted to share my excitment.
"The William Atheling Jr. Award for Criticism or Review are a Special Category under the Ditmar Awards. "The Athelings", as they are known for short, are awarded for excellence in science fiction and speculative criticism, and were named for the pseudonym used by James Blish for his critical writing."
Check out my blog for details...and read some posts! :-D
