Goodreads/LT stats
Only two of the books are readily available in the US: the Hutchinson and the Wood. The Chambers and Sullivan are due out in March and April, respectively. According to Chris Beckett's site, there are no plans for US publication of Daughter of Eden (alas).

Nice to see two Interzone stories nominated although I didn't hugely like either.

The Horakova essay is a deserved nomination although I lament the golden age of Livejournal when essays of that length and depth appeared frequently. I mark it down for its unduly negative attitude to Farscape, though.
