What do you think of the results? I’ve heard good things about Spring Heeled Jack (check out jynnantonnyx’s review) but nothing about Harmony. Anybody read it?

A very surprising but excellent choice. I never would have guessed this book would have been selected. It was enjoyable to read although it does tend to drag along in some spots.

I predicted it will win just because of the stunning cover art :) After my holiday reading, which includes the colossal "A Game of Thrones" I’ll take on "Jack". In the meantime I’ve also purchased the sequel to "Jack", featuring more awesome art. Strange how I’m becoming emerged into the fantasy genre of late (thanks to WWEnd for highlighting the best of the best) – I no longer suffer from a bias towards hard-sf per se :)

I must admit I bought it for the cover and for the unlikely pairing of Swinburne and Burton. I liked it more than I expected. Although as with most time travel books, I was developing paradox headache by the end.
