Congratulations all, especially Liz Bourke, Kameron Hurley and Anne Leckie--three of my favorites this last year.

"Ack-Ack" -> "Ack-Ack Macaque" I presume. It's a strong shortlist: I think that the Leckie, McAuley and Priest are all in with a chance, the Powell is entertaining but minor and I haven't read the Hurley. Not sure I can comment on the rest at the moment.

Thanks. It's an incredible honour to be on that list. (If I'm dreaming, don't nobody wake me up. :) )
