Locus Awards

The Locus Awards were announced in Seattle yesterday. China Miéville and George R.R. Martin took home the Science Fiction Novel and Fantasy Novel prizes (with Embassytown and A Dance With Dragons), which sets up a titanic battle for the Hugo. Erin Morgenstern won the First Novel prize with The Night Circus. But the big winner of the night was Cat Valente who took home the prizes for YA Novel (The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making), Novella (Silently and Very Fast) and Novelette (White Lines on a Green Field). A clean sweep of all of the short fiction categories was prevented only by the presence of Neil Gaiman on the Short Story ballot. The full results are available here.

This is, of course, a good excuse to remind you that you can buy Silently and Very Fast from my ebook store.
