Alas and alack, SUSPECT did not win through to the final list of 99 titles. But then, I didn’t really expect it to. A quick tour through the nominations assured me back in November that my book was quite light by comparison without having the high concept of something like Natalie Standiford’s CONFESSION OF THE SULLIVAN SISTERS. But I still feel like I’m in wonderful company since Richard Peck and Robin McKinley didn’t make the final cut either. I was delighted, however, to see the most recent fantasies by Megan Whalen Turner and Elizabeth Bunce on the list.
