What do you think of this lineup?  The Dervish House makes headlines again this weekend with the Hugo nod to go along with the BSFA win yesterday.  It’s looking like I may have to give it a go.

Dervish House seems to be making big waves. I’ve never read any Ian McDonald, but I’ve read both good and bad books that take the whole separate-yet-interconnected-storyline bit, so I’m a bit leery, but after seeing that it won the BSFA award and is nominated for the Hugo I guess I need to give it a shot!

Mhmm, I’m not surprised that Willis and Bujold featured. "Feed" is a surprise, though. It’s a book that wasn’t on my horizon at all.I have already obtained "Kingdoms" from the Nebula list and am looking forward to reading it – it does seem to draw a wide range of responses. This may just be the year for McDonald, and well-deserved it would be. I’ve recently read "Brasyl" and enjoyed the premise. I will be collecting all his books based on this reading experience, although it did took me some time to get ‘into’ the book. There is a literary quality to his writing that I fully appreciate, as opposed to Bujold and Willis’ minimalistic but apt storytelling ability. Mira Grant will be new reading experience – I have no idea what it is about, hopeful that there be zombies :)
