Thanks for the Locus Poll votes!
Queen of Candesce was one of Locus Magazine's readers' favourite books last year
I just got the July, 2008 issue of Locus magazine, and lo and behold the results of the Locus Poll are out. Queen of Candesce got an extremely respectable 830 points worth of votes, which places me in the company of authors like Ian McDonald, Charlie Stross, and Bob Wilson as one of their readers' favourite authors of 2007.
I knew the magazine's reviewers liked that novel--and truth to tell, I've always gotten a great critical reception for my work. But it's hard sometimes to judge how the readers--people who aren't in the book industry in one way or another--feel about my stuff. This is a great boost. To all of you who voted for me... thanks!
And, oh yes, there's only four weeks until Pirate Sun comes out! So there's much more to come.
