  1. Yay for Bridesicle! Definitely the best of the short story submissions.

    How did this match up with your votes?

    • I called Moon and Girl Genius right. I skipped some categories because I didn’t have time to read them all.

      As much as I wanted Julian Comstock to win, I appreciate that Miéville is overdue, and I think I wrote somewhere that The Windup Girl was going to take it– even though I find the book uneven and somewhat overrated.
