For the duration of the voting period, my novelette, "It Takes Two," is available on my website as a free PDF.

I'm as excited as a child--anyone would think this was my first time. Oh, wait, this is my first time for a Hugo! Ha!

There's a lot I find interesting about the ballot but I'm typing this after some serious celebrating so I think the Deep Thoughts (okay, pretty superficial at this point) thoughts will have to wait for later. For now: congratulations, everyone! I know a surprising number of people on this ballot and what I wish most of all is that we could all be in a room drinking our favourite tipple (whether it's Guinness, Coke Zero, 20-yr old malt, disgusting pink sticky things, or what). Cheers!
