SFOO makes top ten science fiction blog list

A big thank you to all my faithful readers! I just found that Science Fiction and Other ODDysseys was listed on in their Top Ten Great Scifi Blogs list last month. Woo hoo! This month, apparently, is National Blog Posting Month. It's like National Novel Writing Month for bloggers. You sign up and blog every day all month to develop the blogging habit.

Have you read my story, "Troll Games" yet? It's available on flashquake through November, but why wait? It will only take five minutes of your time. Remember Fractured Fairy Tales on the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show? Troll Games is my fractured fairy tale.

The Hugos were doled out this weekend at AussieCon (68th World Science Fiction Convention) in Melbourne. There was a tie for best novel between China MiƩville's The City & The City and Paolo Bacigalupi's The Windup Girl. Congrats, boys!

Ellen Datlow received the Best Editor - short fiction. Stay tuned for an interview with Ellen here on SFOO.

Best Dramatic Presentation - Short Form went to Doctor Who: "The Waters of Mars".

Seanan McGuire scored this year's John W. Campbell award for best new writer.

Visit Tor's blog for the full list of who won and who they were competing against.

Congratulations to all the winners!

vote it up!

Have you read "Diamond Age or, a Young Ladie's Illustrated Primer" by Neal Stephenson? I think you would enjoy it! Check out my review of it on my blog

Ann: I adored your Troll Games story. The descriptions brought me right there. Yes, I used to love fractured fairy tales and this was definitely one! Thanks for writing such a cute story. Jeane Slone

Thanks, guys and Jeane.
Amanda - no I haven't read either. I read Anathem before it hit the shelves, though. Thanks for the heads up.
