This is my second and last year to be eligible for the Campbell Award. I suspect it's a long shot, but herein my plug:
If you're going to WorldCon this year, Nippon 2007, or went to L.A.con IV and are a supporting member, Nominate me? Pleeeease?
Okay, now I flop. Was at work past 10PM last night. My eyes are having trouble focusing. And the General Assembly is back in session today after their recess. Oog.
I don't roll that deep, but I do know a couple of folks who are planning to make it to Yokohama. I'll pass your pitch along. They've got their own preferences, but they're also pretty scared of me (for obvious reasons) so I'll make as strong a case as possible.
Actually, it's for the "John W. Campbell Best New Writer Award" which is presented at the same time as the Hugos. Jay Lake and Elizabeth Bear were the last two years' winners, respectively. I don't think I've got much chance, but I thought I'd at least put a shout out.
Um, the deadline is March 3.
However, I'd be delighted to send you anything to read of mine, published or unpublished; I always am. But you probably already knew that . . .
Personally, I think Naomi Novick is going to win it, but that didn't stop me from a bit of campaigning (okay, more than a bit) at Boskone this past weekend. I'd love to make the ballot.
And I'll be happy to put your name to one of my five nomination slots. Author, Editor, Reviewer, and all around Calendar Girl, you deserve your shot!
