      And the lists are all so different! I’ve got 7 more awards that I know I’ll be covering this year, but there are others beyond that!

      The next shortlist should be the Hugos, and the PKD, BSFA, and Clarke winners will all be announced next month.

      I saw your tweet about it! It sounds good! I’m also curious about The Adjacent but I don’t know when I’ll ever get around to it.
