Clarke Awards

18 Mar

I read a lot. (Sometimes I think of something to say about what I read, too). But you have to feed the beast that is the reading in-bookcase.

So I’ve just ordered from the lovely Big Green Books – http://www.biggreenbookshop.com/ – the Clarke Award shortlist:

~ Nexus by Ramez Naam (Angry Robot)
God’s War by Kameron Hurley (Del Rey)
The Machine by James Smythe (Blue Door)
Ancillary Justice by Anne Leckie (Orbit)
The Disestablishment of Paradise by Phillip Mann (Gollancz)
The Adjacent by Christopher Priest (Gollancz)

(stolen from Angry Robot blog: http://angryrobotbooks.com/2014/03/arthur-c-clarke-award-shortlist-2014/?utm_source=website&utm_campaign=wordtwit&utm_medium=web)

Two of these I actually know as good authors; one I have seen on t’internet, and the others are something I look forward to 🙂
