  1. Yeah, I didn’t display the complete list. Check out the links for others, like movies (Yay, Sky Captain!)

  2. Two addenda:

    1. I failed to note that all of the novel nominees are British (Thanks, BDO)

    2. I expect that the short story nominees will all be available online in the very near future so as to give voters a chance to sample the wares. (Indeed, Charles Stross states as much about his own stories.)
