Thank you, David. You are one of the classiest people I know.
Ah, well. Maybe it'll be like Peter Jackson - you'll be nominated for all of them, but win for the last one. So let me be the first to congratulate you on the John W. Campbell award for the third, as-yet-untitled and unwritten third book in he Acacia Trilogy! (And yes, David, I agree with Ms. Kowal - you are indeed one of the classiest people I know.)
paranoyd, the Campbell Award is reserved to new authors (in the SF/F field, of course), who are eligible for two years after they're first professionally published (recognized by SFWA, IIRC). David will be eligible for the next year Award as well, after that he can "only" aspire to the full blown Hugo Award for Best Novel.
Hey, I clapped extra loud for your nomination, David. And bought a few other people your beers - Good beer I might add. So now I owe you three. :)BTW, Mary gave awesome panel presentations...
Well, see, David? I'm all ready to vote for you and you were already robbed of the award! I guess you are stuck with the Hugo then. Congrats! ;)
I'm sorry you didn't win, but you should be proud you're part of such distinguished company!
Thanks for the kind wishes! I'm perfectly fine with it. Actually, there's something nice about knowing that Mary so completely squashed me into the dirt below her deceptively powerful (yet petite) foot. It was no close contest at all. Mary rocked it.There is next year, yes. Well see, maybe by then more voters will know my work and know me personally, too. (Can't guarantee that's a good thing, but I'll keep smiling.)Constance, I'm not quite sure how the fact that you bought other people my beers adds up to you still owing ME three beers, but that sounds great. I'll look forward to it!
David, it's one of those "If a train left the station" things. Follow along... Buying other people beer + not cheap beer + 1 microbrew + multiple parties - nominated author / said author's obnoxious comments about certain Wyomingite = 3 regular beers or two microbrews from some obscure brewery near Devils Tower. Got it? *g*
Nope. Totally confused. I was never good at those "If a train left the station" things.
Neither was I. But if you write them, people usually don't ask you to solve them. *g*
