I’ve been quiet lately, locked alone in my office trying to create weird worlds and lots and lots of words. In the meantime, Bad Glass has managed to pick up a couple more honors.
First, it made the preliminary ballot for the 2012 Bram Stoker Awards (first novel category). In order to become an official nominee, however, it needs to survive a vote from the HWA membership, narrowing that list from 10 to 5. We’ll see what happens; I’m not sure how many HWA members have had a chance to read the book.
Second, Bad Glass appears on the Locus 2012 Recommended Reading List (again, first novel category). A very cool honor. Locus actually published an interesting analysis/review of the book back in their December issue, and it’s worth a read. It’s pretty cool to see a reviewer delve deeply into what I was trying to do.
