sweet barking cheese!!!
Congratulations to yswilce (aka Ysabeau S. Wilce) for winning the freaking Andre Norton Nebula Award for How a Girl of Spirit Gambles All to Expand Her Vocabulary, Confront a Bouncing Boy Terror, and Try to Save Califa from a Shaky Doom (Despite Being Confined to Her Room)! Joining Holly Black and J.K. Rowling, in that notable pantheon. trillian_stars and I are, at this very moment, reading the first book, Flora Segunda: Being the Magickal Mishaps of a Girl of Spirit, Her Glass-Gazing Sidekick, Two Ominous Butlers (One Blue), a House with Eleven Thousand Rooms, and a Red Dog.
When we were hanging out with the Wilce's I kept thinking it was such a tragedy that we didn't live closer, and it is.
Congratulations! (and the rest of you, go buy her books!)
Ysabeau in her fabulous writing space.
