    Hugo Nominations and Awards - Onwards to 2020

    Bestselling books marketed as mainstream, like Circe, traditionally didn't do well in Hugo contest and it apparently didn't change. I wonder if Marlon James and Margaret Atwood will have more luck next year. James seems likely to make my list, but it is still very early, so it is hard to say. The same goes for Rejoice which I nominated. It is a book by bestselling fantay author and probabły flew below the radar of most voters.

    K.J. Parker (a.k.a.Tom Holt) - Part II

    I think The Company is the most downbeat, with The Hammer probably the second. The three first trilogies also are big downers (Two of Swords not so much). I would also remommend Sharps as a reasonably cheerful novel (for Parker, at least).

    Book of the Ancestor trilogy by Mark Lawrence {spoiler thread}

    Four, actually, one for each finger. I also think she used extended fingers, but I am not completely sure.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    I think it was gunpowder, but I don't have the book at hand, so I can't be sure.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Very interesting interview with Miles Cameron here: http://farbeyondreality.com/2013/01/25/author-interview-miles-cameron/ Red Knight was my favorite epic fantasy novel of 2012, and I really can't wait for the second volume.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Essay linked above answers this question. Basically, it apparently is alternate Earth, not a separate world.

    Nobel Literature Prize Speculation 2019 - Tokarczuk and Handke

    Well, Stieg Larsson is sort of dead, and I think it just may disqualify him. As for Dylan, I can only say he is way better poet than some who actually did win.

    [Pre-ADwD Spoilers] "New" POV 1 - Spoilers for ADwD

    [quote name='Greycox' post='1349314' date='May 10 2008, 00.19']"Purposefully shaped"? It does seem so. But, from what we know of the Boltons this might even trend towards normalcy - and perhaps even more so where bastards are concerned. Also, one might argue that Roose's [s]child[/s] monster rearing techniques are necessary in order to raise someone that's [s]worthy[/s] adequately monsterous to one day be the Lord of the Dreadfort.[/quote] The Boltons as Siths? Roose as Master and Ramsay as Apprentice who can replace a Master only by killing him? This sure sounds like a new theory. Seems interesting.

    [Pre-ADwD Spoilers] "New" POV 1 - Spoilers for ADwD

    Theon meeting fake Arya may have interesting implicatios. Does Ramsay know that he isn't getting real Arya? Will Theon tell him? Does it matter to Ramsay at all?

    [Pre-ADwD Spoilers] Jon 3 but actually Jon 1

    [quote name='Ran' post='1302659' date='Apr 6 2008, 12.46']From remarks Odie made elsewhere, George seems to have already changed some sort of detail related to Tywin's death and the events in this chapter. I'm guessing that he dropped Slynt's reference to Tywin, but that's just a guess. :)[/quote] This would clear it. I suspect it was continuity error analogical to Dorne chapter in AFFC. That one was removed in paperback edition, IIRC.
