A Slew of Kudos

The past few days have seen a flurry of praise and recognition for Jim and his friends!

+ The CODEX ALERA made the Top 100 list in NPR’s search for the Best 10 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Novels! (The Dresden Files do not seem to have been eligible, as NPR appears to be lumping Urban Fantasy in with Paranormal Romance, which will get its own competition.) There are a lot of fantastic books and series nominated, and if you feel Alera deserves to be in your Top 10, we’d love to have your vote! Vote for your 10 favorite books/series, then discuss your picks here. Voting ends August 11th!

+ Publisher’s Weekly is reporting that Jim has done it again: GHOST STORY is the third Dresden book in a row to hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller list! Squee on the forum!

+ The DRESDEN FILES RPG swept the Ennies, taking home awards in all six categories they were nominated in. They won Silver in “Best Production Values” and “Product of the Year,” plus Gold in “Best Writing,” “Best Rules,” “Best New Game,” and “Best Game.” Offer the Evil Hat team your congratulations here!

And don’t forget about Jim’s BittenByBooks Q&A this afternoon!
