This is how I am voting in the
Best Novella category. Of course, I merely offer this information
regarding my individual ballot for no particular reason at all, and the
fact that I have done so should not be confused in any way, shape, or
form with a slate or a bloc vote, much less a direct order by the
Supreme Dark Lord of the Evil Legion of Evil to his 367 Vile Faceless
Minions or anyone else.
- “One Bright Star to Guide Them”
- “Big Boys Don’t Cry”
- “The Plural of Helen of Troy”
- “Pale Realms of Shade”
In the relatively near future, I will be debating the merits and demerits of John C. Wright’s “One Bright Star to Guide Them” versus those of The Wasp Factory by Iain M. Banks with Phil Sandifier. It should be an interesting discussion, as the two works in some ways represent the two poles of the Blue SF/Pink SF divide, even if few would consider the Banks novel to be science fiction or fantasy.
