Christy Awards, Hugo Awards

I'm very pleased to announce that Shelley Adina's The Fruit of My Lipstick (All About Us Series, Book 2) has been nominated for the much-sought-after Christy Award. The full list of nominations is here.

And, since I didn't have the opportunity last week, I'd like to take a moment to congratulate my clients who have been nominated for this year's Hugo Award:

* In the novelette category: “Shoggoths in Bloom” by Elizabeth Bear (Asimov’s Mar 2008)

* In the short story category: “Evil Robot Monkey” by Mary Robinette Kowal (The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction: Volume 2), Audio Version online

* In the best graphic story category: The Dresden Files: Welcome to the Jungle Written by Jim Butcher, art by Ardian Syaf (Del Rey/Dabel Brothers Publishing)

* In best dramatic presentation, long form: METAtropolis by John Scalzi, ed. Written by: Elizabeth Bear, Jay Lake, Tobias Buckell and Karl Schroeder (Audible Inc)

So, big congratulations to Elizabeth Bear, Jim Butcher, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Jay Lake -- and to all their worthy opponents!
