  1. I’m in the process of reading Glamour in Glass now and haven’t read any of the other novel nominations, sadly. I do hope that all the short story offerings make it out there for free reading before the end because it would be nice to try to get them all read to be able to have an intelligent conversation about them once the awards are announced.
