This was a team effort
I just received word from Audible.com that our followup to Metatropolis, Metatropolis: Cascadia has won the 2012 Audie Award for Best Original Production!
The Audies have been awarded annually by the Audio Publisher's Association since 1996. The gala award ceremony for this year's awards was held last night.
Metatropolis: Cascadia is a collection of novella-length works, written by myself, Jay Lake, Mary Robinette Kowal, Tobias S. Buckell, Elizabeth Bear and Ken Scholes, and set in the world of Metatropolis. It embraces and extends the ideas of the first anthology, and in its audiobook incarnation, the stories were read by cast members from Star Trek.
So, if you've been thinking lately that you want to listen to an award-winning story of mine that's read in a particularly gonzo faux-Russian accent by Jonathon Frakes, Cascadia is the best place to go.
Jay, Mary, Toby, Bear, and Ken: thank you, and congratulations.

It was a great line-up this year and I like the results
Head on over to Tor.com for a complete list of the winners. I feel a connection to this year's awards, because so many good friends were nominated, and some won. (Hey, John, Elizabeth!) I'm pleased to see that Stephan Martiniere won as Best Professional Artist, a recognition he's deserved for a number of years now; and also it's good to see my editor, David Hartwell, land his second Hugo for Best Editor, Long form (best book editor).
I hope you guys partied til dawn.

There's a new Doctorow to contend with
Cory's announced the birth of his daughter, fittingly enough, on boingboing. Apparently mother and child are doing fine. No word on the state of the father.
Janice and I send our best wishes to you, man. You're gonna have a blast!
