So, Boneshaker and The City & The City.  No surprises there as they have both been very well received and won multiple awards – especially City with six nominations and now three wins.  Impressive.  Both books are still in the running for the 2010 Hugo as well with City also still in the hunt for the 2010 Campbell.

I still don’t have an explanation as to why The City & The City was nominated as a fantasy novel and not a sci-fi novel. It’s nominated for every other award as a sci-fi novel but in this case it was not. I have not checked the Locus site so if the answer is there may I be smote-d.

A well-deserved win for Boneshaker. It was one of the most entertaining books I’ve read in a long time.
