I was supposed to sit on this a while longer, but somebody apparently jumped the gun, so now I’m allowed to tell.
Romantic Times (which covers a great many things besides romance) is holding its Reviewers’ Choice Awards, and With Fate Conspire has been nominated! In, er, the “Epic Fantasy” category, which is not what I would have expected — but hey, I’m in good company:
THE WISE MAN’S FEAR Patrick Rothfuss, DAW, (March 2011)
WITH FATE CONSPIRE Marie Brennan, TOR, (September 2011)
THE COLD COMMANDS Richard K. Morgan, DEL REY, (October 2011)
THE KINGDOM OF GODS N.K. Jemisin, ORBIT, (November 2011)
STANDS A SHADOW Col Buchanan, TOR, (November 2011)
I won’t know the results until April. In the meantime, congrats to my fellow nominees, and to all the other nominated authors.
