Indie Lit Awards Shortlist

Sorry for the lack of posting. I've been sick, my 5 month old's been sick (and not sleeping for the past 3 weeks) and now I'm just recovering from sickness number two in just under a month. The joys of having a kid. :)

Right now I'm reading for the Independent Literary Awards, of which I'm a judge in the Speculative Fiction category. I've mentioned this a bit before, but it's an award voted on solely by bloggers. We're down to the short list and therefore, I have lots of reading before we can pick a winner (which should be around the end of the month to early next month).

The Short list is:

Monsters of Men [US] [UK] - Patrick Ness
How to Live Safely in a Science Fiction Universe [US] [UK] - Charles Yu
Dante's Journey [US] [UK] - JC Marino (my review)
The Passage [US] [UK] - Justin Cronin
Kraken [US] [UK] - China Mieville

I've got two down, in the middle of a third and pretty much right on track to finish this list by the end of the month. Let's hope so. :)
