Locus in Focus!

Dear, beautiful all, I need your help!

If you liked the Nebula-nominated Tower of Mud and Straw, please consider voting for it in the Locus Poll. My publisher and I never thought Tower would achieve success—and we never submitted the book to the magazine, which means you'd have to use a "write-in" field for Best Novella:

Tower of Mud and Straw, Yaroslav Barsukov (Metaphorosis)
