Remember, the Campbell is not a Hugo. I think it's emblazoned on the trophy or something in bright green letters, given the number of times they announced it as Jay tripped up the stairs.


Yeah, Stacy has a point.  They announce that phrase like a DOZEN times during the ceremony.  If you're asking about an actual Hugo for best novel, I'm guessing my chances are very slim.  The thing is, the book hasn't had a wide enough release to gather the kind of publicity I'd need for a Hugo.  Even if you all nominate me (which I certainly would appreciate) I doubt it will make a dent in the number of nominations you'd need to even get on the ballot.  

As for how I heard of it--I got emailed by Joshua, JJA, and Toby.  So, within the community, people know about this.

Congrats, Mr. Sanderson.  Perhaps this will spur the success you've earned.
It’s a beautiful world but everyone’s insane
Either you swim or either you fade
It’s a revolution time we’re sleeping at the wheel
Apocalypse child in a nuclear field.

Nice!!
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!
