Okay -- the FAQ line is working again. If you submitted something in the past five days, or tried, please send it again now.

The Nebula news is at, Locus Online's news page. The line at the bottom This year's ballot marks the first final-ballot Nebula nominations for China Mi�ville, Robert A. Metzger, Richard Chwedyk, Charles Coleman Finlay, Richard Bowes, Charles Stross, Gregory Frost, M. Shayne Bell, Carol Emshwiller, Tim Pratt, and all of the script nominees except for Joss Whedon had me scratching my head going "What about me?" for a moment, until I realised that of course I had been nominated for a Nebula before -- for the English language script to Princess Mononoke.

The nominees are:
American Gods, Neil Gaiman (Morrow)
Bones of the Earth, Michael Swanwick (Eos)
The Other Wind, Ursula K. Le Guin (Harcourt Brace)
Perdido Street Station, China Mi�ville (Del Rey)
Picoverse, Robert A. Metzger (Ace)
Solitaire, Kelley Eskridge (Eos)

It's an honour to be nominated, and American Gods has more than its share of awards already, so I'm happy it's on the list but will not worry about it further.

Stardust has been put on the Young Adult American Library Association website as a 2003 recommended paperback book -- they have some great lists of books on their sites .
