[…] 2011 Locus Winners. Several books are on my list and several more will be added.  I’ve read more science fiction this year than last but I still feel woefully behind when it comes to this genre.  I was thrilled to see Kraken by China Mieville win best Fantasy novel.  I loved that book!  Two Connie Willis books, Black Out and All Clear will be read this year too.  And A Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and Shades of Milk and Honey are also high on the TBR but, let’s face it, they’ve been there since 2011 started so who knows when I’ll get to them but I will.  I make no promises but considering the sorry state of my reading, these two may jump the list.
