Excellent. Here’s the announcement page. I won this award a couple of years back with The Last Colony, so it’s nice to be nominated again. Other nominees in the Science Fiction category are Mira Grant (Blackout), Iain Banks (The Hydrogen Sonata), Charles Yu (Stories) and Justin Cronin (The Twelve). This is fine company to keep. Congrats to all.
There’s a Fantasy category as well, which feature nominations for Mary Robinette Kowal, N.K. Jemisin, Michelle Sagara, Tina Connelly and Lisa Sherin. And look! Elizabeth Bear nominated in the Epic Fantasy category! Congratulations to them as well!
Hey, you like buying in bulk, right? Then here’s a deal for you: Subterranean Press has put together a bundle of all their Scalzi titles (all of the titles you see above, plus my extraordinarily topical short story “An Election”) and made them available to you in electronic form for a single low price: $7.99 (in the US; price may vary elsewhere). Which is more than 50% off what you would pay for them individually. And yes, they are all of them DRM-free. But you only get this bundle this month, so if you want it, get it soon.
(If you have some of these already but remember that you want others, the titles here are also still available individually, with prices starting at 99 cents).
Here’s where to get the bundle: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Amazon UK.
Now, go! Buy! Make your ancestors proud.
Update, 3:06pm: This note from Tobias Buckell, who in addition to being an excellent writer also created the files for these works:
Judge Sn has been added to the bundle, FYI. It can vary how long it will take for the new file to show up (instantly to 48 hrs), but anyone who purchased prior to the new upload should be able to go into their account and redownload the file and get the updated version.
Sometimes it’s easy to lose the plot.
