That's right, folks, I will be making my way to Hotlanta* this Labor Day weekend to confer with dragons of various sorts. Actually, I'll be there to do various geeky things and, more importantly, to hand out the very first Baen Year's Best Military SF and Space Opera Award. The award is a readers' choice award that uses the table of contents from Year's Best Military SF and Space Opera as the ballot. Obviously, I'm interested to see who wins as I think the whole darn book is pretty top-notch.
Also: YOU can vote! That's right, YOU can help determine who I fork over the award to come Labor Day Weekend. Just purchase your copy of The Year's Best Military SF and Space Opera (available for pre-order here), read the stories, pick your fave, then follow the instructions at the front of the book to learn how to vote. Nothing could be easier!
Anyway, should be lots of fun. If you're going to be there, let me know and we'll try and meet up.
* My friend Lucas, who lived in Atlanta for many years, assures me that NO ONE calls it Hotlanta. I prefer not to believe him.
