Yesterday afternoon, in the midst of RavenCon and my ongoing bewilderment, I received notification that my novel, The Shadow of the Sun, is a finalist for the 2012 Compton Crook Award. (!!) as you may recall from earlier squee,
The Compton Crook Award is presented to the best first novel of the year written by a single author: collaborations are not eligible: in the field of Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Horror by the members of the Baltimore Science Fiction Society, Inc., at their annual Baltimore-area science fiction convention, Balticon, held on Memorial Day weekend in the Baltimore, MD area each year.
I wish I could find a list of this year’s finalists, because i’ve no doubt they should be on my radar, but the BSFS doesn’t seem to publish that list in advance of the award. So I’ll just have to check back later, and I’ll let you know what I find.
Meanwhile I can’t wait for Balticon. If you’re within range of Baltimore, I hope you’ll come out and see me there.
