Matthew Hughes review-a-thon

I had the great pleasure of publishing a novel by Canadian author Matthew Hughes late last year: The Commons, under my Robert J. Sawyer Books imprint from Red Deer Press / Fitzhenry & Whiteside.

A portion of that book, published as a standalone novella, was up for the Nebula Awards given this past weekend; Matt didn't win, but his work is without question award-calibre, and I said as much in a blurb I just provided for his next book, coming from Britain's terrific PS Publishing:
"Matthew Hughes's Template is many things -- including a template others should follow to produce outstanding writing. Hughes has been the best-kept secret in SF for far too long: he's a towering talent, and Template is his best work to date. Bravo!"
And now James Nicoll is trying to organize a blogosphere review-a-thon for Matt's new book. See James Nicoll's LiveJournal for all the details.
