JABberwocky is delighted to congratulate Tanya Huff, whose The Silvered is now a finalist for the 2013 Aurora Award for Best Novel – English Language. Given for over 30 years by the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association, the Aurora recognize achievement by Canadian writers of sf/f, and the winners will be announced at Canvention in Ottawa, Ontario in October 2013. This is Tanya’s third nomination for the Aurora, and we certainly hope the “third time’s the charm” saying will prove correct, as we consider THE SILVERED to be one of Tanya’s very best novels (Joshua would say best-to-date honors are very close between THE SILVERED and SING THE FOUR QUARTERS) and have said so loud and long from our very first reading of it. Ranting Dragon and the Los Angeles Times have also had the novel on Best-of-2012 lists. Readers agree; 38 out of 39 reviews on Amazon give the book either 4* or 5*, which is the kind of ratio you don’t see often for books with as many reviews as this. You’ll want to give a read to THE SILVERED if you haven’t already, and our congratulations again to Tanya on a well-deserved accolade.
