Geordie Williamson, fellow judge of the Australian–Vogel Award this year, talks about the spaces we've all been in for the past 3 months. The shortlist is there, and the prize itself will be presented on Thursday night.

At left, the UK's Books for Keeps reviews Tender Morsels.

Fyrefly has been listening to the audio book of Tender Morsels (you can listen to a sample over there—don't know if I'll be able to listen to the whole thing, it's such a weird experience—but people who didn't actually write the book may find it bearable!), and it sounds as if the second-act issues some people have been having will be exacerbated by listening rather than reading. I'm thinking, with this new multiple-POV novel I'm working on, maybe I'll just be super-clear about it and put the new-POV-character's name at the head of each piece.

I'm not sure that I noted these three reviews.

Tracy Baines picks my brain over at Tall Tales and Short Stories: 'I’ve generally found picking at sores and prodding at bruises to be more interesting than tiptoeing through the tulips, writing-wise.'

Whoo-ee, and someone calling themselvesTall Tales and Abrupt Stories has put the above interview through some kind of weird translator, changing the above sentence into: 'I’ve most of the time arriere pensee out-dated picking at sores and prodding at bruises to be more gripping than tiptoeing via the tulips, writing-wise.'

And the fabulously named Thor Axegrinder reviews Black Juice:
this book deserves a post, NOW. Why? Because it’s a reminder of why I keep reading fantasy despite the genre being overloaded with pandering, warmed-over shit, doubly so for YA fantasy.
