Brit Writers' Awards 2010-Published Writer of the Year Award

Seems to be the award season! :lol: This one's on the main site though, so I guess we should all look at it at least :wink:

THIS IS WHERE YOU GO to see the candidate's books - Nation has been entered by Random House.

The awards are being presented on Thursday 15 July so I suppose voting needs to go in a.s.a.p now :shock:

Do they know that? You can still vote anyway? :wink:

And yes - it's a cracking book, even though it's not Discworld :D

I think it's excellent. But I know some Discworld fans were disappointed. Try not to expect a DW book and you should enjoy it too. :wink:
