Ragamuffin a Nebula Finalist! Woot!

Last night I passed out sick, I woke up very late to a spate of messages pointing out that Ragamuffin had made the final Nebula ballot.

Holy freaking cow! How cool is that?

I’ll tell you how cool: ginormously freaking adrenalizingly cool!

I’ve been replying to emails via my iPhone, as I had to wake up, shower, and eat lunch with someone I’d promised I’d eat lunch with, but now I’m back and replying to all my emails and posting this up.

I’m very psyched!

Thank you to everyone who voted, this is quite an honor.

John Scalzi has the ballot here.

My category, the novels one:

Odyssey – McDevitt, Jack (Ace, Nov06)

The Accidental Time Machine – Haldeman, Joe (Ace, Aug07)

The Yiddish Policemen’s Union – Chabon, Michael (HarperCollins, May07)

The New Moon’s Arms – Hopkinson, Nalo (Warner Books, Feb07)

Ragamuffin – Buckell, Tobias (Tor, Jun07)

This is not only cool because I’m on there, but because we have two Caribbean genre novels up there, mine and Nalo’s!

What an awesome day!
