I'm a judge; the others are all Canadian winners of the contest.

Jim C Hines? I just read his Goblin Quest a few weeks ago. I was bored one day so went to the store, and it was a totally random pick. And when I finished it I was impressed, it's a great little story.

At least one of us was a U.S. winner. Much as I love you Canadians, I had to come back across the border at the end of the con :-)

And thanks, anonymous commenter! So glad you enjoyed the book! Jig's a fun character to write. I'm currently finishing up the last few chapters of a third book for the poor little guy...

A third book? Well I now see the second is just coming out. I'll be looking for it come May.

Sorry -- didn't see your name in the first comment. For some reason, my browser covers "don said..." with the "3 Comments" text.

Anyway, DAW hasn't bought the third book yet, but I'm hoping. I'll probably leave poor Jig alone after that, at least for a while, because I don't want the stories to get stale.
