I hear on the interwebs that Hugo nominations have opened. I'm not a voter, but I guess this is as good a time as any to recap the books I found best in 2011?*




Fiction:


1. Jo Walton, Among Others.

2. Elizabeth Bear, The Sea Thy Mistress.

3. Delia Sherman, The Freedom Maze.

4. Chris Wooding, The Iron Jackal - Reviewed at Tor.

5. Elizabeth Bear, Grail - Reviwed at Tor.

6. Daniel Fox, Hidden Cities - Reviewed at Ideo.

7. Ben Aaronovitch, Moon Over Soho - Reviewed at Ideo.




Nonfiction:

While the fiction was all published in 2011, the nonfiction - well, wasn't.


1. Tim Macintosh-Smith, Travels With A Tangerine: A Journey in the Footnotes of Ibn Battutah.

2. Tim Macintosh-Smith, Yemen: Travels in Dictionary Land.

3. David Brewer, The Greek War of Independence.

6. Usama ibn Munqidh, The Book of Contemplation: Islam and the Crusades.

7. Tim Macintosh-Smith, Landfalls.






Today I have written much of a Funding Application of DOOM. And a review. Eleven or twelve hours of consistent work, with only a couple of short breaks. My brain, it is scraped quite clean.

And tomorrow, I must finish the FAoD. Onwards! Death or glory!




*I meant to do it before the New Year. But I got... distracted.

Funding Application of DOOM is drafted and sent to supervisor.

All 2,600 words of pain and 22.5 hours of work of it.

I go make the thud and play videogames for a while now.
