Receive a free copy of my short story Crystal Servants and learn about some of the major players in Crystal Kings, my upcoming novel.

It's good to seek justice, but sometimes the powerful play by their own rules as two servants of the king learn that choices always come with consequences. (Link coming soon!)

Hugo voting update

I got my voting credentials to vote for the Hugo candidates. It turns out that the reader packet won't be ready until late May. Until then, there are three different choices I know of for evaluating the various works and people.
  1. Lock in votes for things I've already read or watched or know about. There are a few.
  2. Find what I can on on the Internet.
  3. Buy some of the likely candidates. As if my night stand doesn't already have stacks a foot or two high. :)
As for number one, I've already started. The mechanics of voting are pretty easy. My votes will depend entirely upon my personal opinion of the various options. The Hugo award is, after all, a contest of opinions.

For number two, I've found links to all of the short story nominees on https://marsascendant.wordpress.com/ and http://www.philipsandifer.com/ but you have to wade through a minor war zone to get to them. Here are the direct story links:

“Turncoat” by Steve Rzasa 
"Totaled" by Kary English
“The Parliament of Beasts and Birds” by John C. Wright
“On a Spiritual Plain” by Lou Antonelli
“Goodnight Stars” by Annie Bellet

You can also get a free ebook with all of John C. Wright's nominees in one package here:

The Nominated Short Fiction Works of John C. Wright

Beyond that, I'm not sure what's out there ahead of the may reader packet. I'll add links if any of you comment with more info.

For number three, I haven't decided what to buy yet, and haven't decided between ebook and dead tree version. I'll probably wait for the packet to come out first.
