Vote for the 41st annual Locus Awards: Post 2

Locus Awards

There’s no real way I’m going to finish Surface Detail by Iain M. Banks the 15th because it requires so much thought and my brain is much. And… Well, I’m not sure how much Mr. Banks will appreciate this, but his awesome book is also serving as a weight for keeping the top of my black bear hamster’s cage down while I’m at work and cannot supervise his hyper, neurotic little self. I swear though that when I go home every night, I put another book there in its place and read at least a few pages of it! 

But anyway, I am loving Surface Detail so much that I felt pretty confident to go ahead and vote today. I really have to thank Ranting Dragon for their giveaway and challenge because I’m pretty sure I could never have checked this book out from the library and got it done fast enough. I definitely wouldn’t have voted for it otherwise. For previous voting thoughts and details, see this post.

Voting overall was pretty simple and easy. In some categories, I entered in a few titles including Dust City by Robert Paul Weston and The Spirit Thief by Rachel Aaron. Because I could since they came out last year and I liked them better than my options. So if you can’t find books that you like on the list, definitely be sure to add books that were overlooked and yet were awesome 2010 releases.

If you haven’t voted yet, are debating your choices, or wanting to know a bit more about top picks, check out Ranting Dragon’s Locus Awards Voting Guide. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a great giveaway to enter once you’re done so get to it!
