Captain’s Share Makes Short List

The 2010 Parsec finalist lists were posted today. Captain’s Share made the short list, and I’m up against some truly formidable competition. Being up against Sigler and Hutchins is tough enough but Mike Bennett? And one of my own favorite authors — Mercedes Lackey!

Jeez. Just being in a list with them is heady stuff.

We’ll know on September 4th if I get to keep my Susan Lucci title and notch another title on the bed post of “losing-est author in the novel category.” Fingers crossed and full speed ahead.

Good thing I got Owner’s Share to keep me occupied in the mean time, eh?

    Mercedes Lackey does rock! But not as much as you do and Captain’s Share is one hell of a good tale.

    Best of luck.

    Happy -323rd birthday Ish.
    Mike Bennett is probably the biggest competition. I’m almost through Underwood and Flinch now, but I won’t be listening to it again. As good as Decent was the first time, I only got through the first episode of the new version. Infected (at least the podcast version) is far from Sigler’s best work, and dropped out just a couple episodes in. Same with Secret World Chronicles. Whereas Captain’s Share is on its fifth rotation through my player. So from my biased, and uninfluential view, I think you’ve got it. But I also thought the same about all the previous years.

    Mr. Lowell. I think it is absolutely great that your work has been recognized in the form of this short-listing for a Parsec Award. Like Mingus, I’m also a devoted fan of Mike Bennett’s ongoing podcast, “Underwood & Flinch”, but I have to agree that I’ve listened to “Captain’s Share” umpteen times already (currently listening to it once again) and it never seems to get old. So I think you probably have a good chance and I wish you the very best of luck. On another note: Have you ever considered doing voice talent for films or such? Perhaps I’m biased, but I think your voice has the right timbre which coupled with your clean diction and measured delivery could be just the ticket.

    I’ve loaned my voice to several podcast productions, but so far no movie company is looking to take on an “amateur” voice when they have plenty of names to hire. 🙂

    Maybe after everyone looses their job. This free-culture thing will catch on.

  9. Great news! I tell ya, these books (That’s what I want to call them) are going to become classics in the field. Also, thanks very much for taking the time to visit my blog and my review of Quarter Share. A thrill.

  10. Joe says:

    I agree with Richard. These books WILL become classics worthy of sharing shelf space with Asimov, Wells, and Adams. I could never give enough praise to you. Looking forward to Owner’s Share with great anticipation.

  11. Good luck, and yes it’s definitely a good thing you have Owners Share to keep you busy. It’s about time I listened through from the beginning again 🙂 and now I can read Quarter Share in paper. Excited for Half Share’s text release! You stay busy Sar, we’re all better for it.
