Okay, I know absolutely nothing about the British Fantasy Awards, and the short list is rather long, and I have no idea who votes for these things, but just in case one of you voters reads this blog, there you go.
EDIT: I’m the only Baen author on the list.
EDIT again: Actually it looks like there are only a handful of Americans on the list at all.
Final EDIT: Never mind, my Google-fu is weak. They have already released the final 6.
