Locus Awards!

I am absolutely stunned to find out that Black Ships is a 2009 Locus Award nominee for Best First Novel! See? http://www.locusmag.com/News/2009/04/2009-locus-award-finalists.html

The winner will be announced in late June, so I have my fingers crossed! Go, little book!

Congratulations! I haven't read any of the others, so I can't say how Black Ships is in comparison. But I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Black Ships
I’ve just finished listening to the audio version of Black Ships (in the car, to and from work) read by Clare Corbett. It was fantastic: so well researched and so well written. The characters came to life for me and it was almost like looking back through time. I hope that Jo Graham wins the Locus award.

Re: Black Ships
Thank you so much! I appreciate it enormously! It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the book. I like Clare Corbett's read very much -- she did a great job.
