Inspys again.

The last time I posted was over a year ago. It has been a busy year, with some good books read, but as yet unblogged. I may get around to those eventually, but in the event that I don't, I will be posting in mid December about about the specualtive fiction category of the INSPY award winners and nominations. You can find the shortlist for that category and the others here. These shortlists make great reading lists, and great gift ideas. I'll be judging the speculative fiction category again this year with a great group of readers, so stay tuned for our recommendations for your must read and don't bother lists when the winners are announced on December 12th
