Congratulations on the nomination, John, I hope you win. Dispatcher is a great read, although I must confess I havent read any of the others to compare them.,So I’ll just indulge in a bit of blind partisanship here.
My library finally had a copy for me to borrow. I had to force myself to put it down, so I could get to bed at a decent hour. The premise is great and interesting.
Congratulations! I haven’t read Dispatchers but I do know ‘The Dream Quest of Vellitt Boe’ is very good. Some stiff competition there.
Congratulations, very good company to be in. Every Heart a Doorway is so, soooo good. I have some of the others on my TBR list. Huzzah!
