  1. “The Jaguar House, in Shadow” novelette is free on the author’s website:

  2. Excellent – thanks!  Link added.

  3. Am I right that three or four of these are debut novels? How unusual is that? I was expecting to see The Dervish House…

    I’m with Scott on this-Where is The Dervish House? That book along with Felix Gilman’s Half Made World were my two favorite SF novels last year. And Echo by Jack McDevitt? It’s an entertaing novel by not by any means a award winner.

    And I love Connie Willis but Blackout/AllClear was about 400 pages too long. With some pruning this good have been a great novel.


  5. Asimov put its nominated stories up as free .pdfs:
