    I see Paulo Bacigalupi is nominated twice this year. I think his writing is brilliant, has something to say, and leaves me thinking. I didn’t think The Windup Girl was quite of Nebula-winning quality last year, though.
    Mary Robinette Kowal, nominated for Novel, is the writer guest of honor at BayCon this year–1 week away. See you there.

    That Leviathan was an explicitly Christian story. Whodathinkit.

    Glad to see Scott Pilgrim got nominated for something, but Inception was definitely the better film.
