Happy Monday, friends! This is a short week for me as I'm heading off on vacation starting Thursday. Let's jump into a little Macmillany goodness to get your week started, shall we?
- Congratulations to 2013 Locus Award finalists John Scalzi, author of REDSHIRTS which is up for Best Science Fiction Novel, Mary Robinette Kowal, author of GLAMOUR IN GLASS which is up for Best Fantasy Novel (I recommended this series in Uncharted Pages!), and Gardner Dozois, editor of The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Twenty-ninth Annual Collection up for Best Anthology!
We're also delighted to see that Tor.com is a finalist for Best Magazine and Tor Books has been nominated for Best Publisher! And while we're at it, a hearty applause for Tor Teen author Cory Doctorow and Mac Kids author Catherynne M. Valente who are nominated for awards as well. See the full list of Locus finalists here.
- We would also like to point you in the direction of Doug Lord's latest (and dare I say, greatest?) selections for Library Journal's Books for Dudes column, "A Simple Murder, Wool, and The Human Division."
- And last, but not even close to least, actually closer to most—a basket full of puppy:

Answer: not a party I want to go to. So Emily in Academic Marketing rolled up her sleeves and got to work using the masterful poster-painting skills she honed over years as a camp counselor. I stepped up as the unofficial/unnecessary/unqualified supervisor/paparazzo/hoverer.
Watch the magic unfold:
And finally... voilà!
It's a Monday morning Macmillan party and you're invited, my friend!
