This is the blog of Sarah Monette/Katherine Addison, a professional writer of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. Sarah Monette is my real name; Katherine Addison is a pen name, intended to be transparent.

If you've found me here, odds are pretty good you're looking for something to read, so the following is--to the best of my knowledge--a complete list of everything I've written that's available online:

So nwhyte, in a labor of insanity love, has number-crunched the results of everybody who chose to propagate this meme.

As a writer/reader/ardent fan of science fiction and fantasy, I find the results interesting and thought-provoking, and although I am by no means hinting either (a.) that anyone else should inflict this meme upon themselves or (b.) that nwhyte should then be obliged to crunch more numbers, I do think that a larger statistical sample would be cool. Because the question about any award is: who is it important to? It's important to the people who win, if only for the sake of their egos, and it's important to the people who confer it, ditto ... but who else? I know, for example, that if a book wins the Tiptree, I will be rewarded immesurably for the effort of reading it, so that particular award has value to me as a reader. And nwhyte's results suggest that the Hugo and the Nebula are fairly accurate reflections of what people are reading. And I think those kinds of things are worth knowing.

Where's the ambiguity? Over there, in a box. The beast is molting and fluff gets up your nose.

Also, in my own act of insanity, I have recompiled the list of award-winners, this time in alphabetical order by author. Which makes it much more possible to use as a checklist when inspecting either one's own bookshelves or the myriad shy treasures of a bookstore.
