Lots to announce today!
As you may have already heard, The Aeronaut’s Windlass was nominated for Best Novel in the 2016 Hugo Awards! This makes his third nomination, after Skin Game was tapped for Best Novel in 2015 and Welcome to the Jungle was short-listed for Best Graphic Story in 2009. Jim’s fellow contenders are some of the most loved in the genre–Ann Leckie, N.K. Jemisin, Neal Stephenson, and Naomi Novik–so best of luck to all! If you want to cast your vote in this or any category, you can register here.
Next, the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Came (or DFCO) Kickstarter ends in 48 hours! For those late to the game, here’s a convenient summary of what each pledge level gets you! You can read about the campaign in greater detail on the main page.
Also, we want to remind you of some upcoming conventions. Jim has three more cons announced for this year, the first of which is this weekend!
