I would like to let you know that although I have work eligible for the Hugo and work on the Locus recommended list, I will not be posting a request for you to vote for it. I will not be itemizing each piece of fiction and asking for your consideration in faux humble tones. I will not be providing links to any fiction online that is eligible. In fact, although I will from time to time tell you about upcoming projects on this blog, I will never use this blog to ask for your vote for any award or honor. Any nomination or honor or award that could be bought in part through blatant self-advertising is pretty much not worth it. And if it can't be bought that way, then why indulge in the fiction that it can be?

Hi Jeff,
You may be interested to know you've received votes of a different kind. Over at sffworld.com Veniss Underground has been voted the fantasy book club book of the month. It'd be really cool if you can swing around a bit later in the month and maybe post a few comments on the discussion.

Yeah, well, I've certainly canvassed for votes in the past for a couple of pet projects, but I'm sick of the whole thing and am done with it.

Ben--thanks, man! I'll definitely stop by.
