“Bright” makes VanderMeer’s Best of the Year

Happy to note that, on Locus Online, Jeff VanderMeer lists Bright of the Sky as among the best books of 2007. He says:(‘Cause I know you’re curious!)

“Unique in conception, like Larry Niven’s Ringworld, this is the beginning to what should be an amazing SF-Fantasy series.”

Other books were: The Terror (Dan Simmons), Brasyl (Ian McDonald), Thirteen (Richard Morgan), Territory (Emma Bull) Zeroville (Steven Erickson), The Traitor (Michael Cisco), The Stone Gods (Jeanette Winterson) and Shelter (Susan Palwick)

    Much as I would love to claim that “not” crept in by mistake, I’m afraid this was simply a careless error. Thank you for pointing that out; I’ll look to this in future editions. Glad you’re enjoying the story!

    Thanks for your reply. I just finished BoTS a couple minutes ago. It was a great read. I had bought it a while ago and deliberately not read it because I suspected I would want to go right on to the next volume, and I do. I loved Sydney especially, and the “free bond.” I’m a middle-aged guy with grown sons, no daughter, and I don’t ride horses (my wife has), but there was something immensely touching about those sections. Thanks for all. –RL
