Where's my Crown?

I'm playing the linkage queen today...

Simon Bestwick has kindly reviewed both Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits and me. Though I disagree, you would know if I walked by because of the spikes and the sparkle. It's an unusual combination.

Next up, look whose book is up at Amazon.com. Yep, Aaron Polson's Loathsome, Dark and Deep. Have you bought several copies yet? I am desperate to read the story. And while you're visiting the Amazon, how about Simon Bestwick's first trade paperback, Tide of Souls. I'm extra lucky, I have a signed copy.

And lastly, it's Nebula nominating time (and the Stokers and the British Fantasy Awards) and I've been seriously remiss in voting so far this year. I've nominated one book for the Stokers, and one short and a novella for a Nebula, and one short for the British Fantasy Awards. And I have a ton of things I need to read before the year is out. Kick up backside appreciated. Anyway, lots of people are listing what stories etc they have that are eligible for nomination including J Kathleen Cheney who is offering a digital copy of her novella, Iron Shoes, for consideration to members of the SFWA. I'm lucky enough to have a copy of Alembical 2 where the story appears and can highly recommend the story.

I think I'm all linked out...

Final NaNoWriMo word count tomorrow. Can you take the suspense?

Cate Gardner said...

No :P You're going to have to toss and turn in your bed all night wondering.

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks for the signal boost Cate. It's been a strange trip for all of us...

Cate Gardner said...

Any time, Aaron

If you did it - Nanowrimo - I'm going to be sooo jealous. I didn't even come close :( Lack of focus I say - maybe that's why I didn't sign up (officially).

If you did it- then you are a leader and I'll give you Queen for a Day - or month - or something.

A most excellent review and well deserved :)

Ooh, I still haven't ordered my copy of Aaron's book! Now that I've actually been paid, I can do that right now!

Nice review. :)
