...well, excepting the obvious answer - and alas, the Loch Neth sea monster's not feeling his best, so. You know. ;)
But not I!
Perhaps it's symptomatic of some early-game enthusiasm for the whole process of blogging, but with Top of the Scots back before Christmas I spent a whole week ringing in the year's best, and I still found myself with enough of an appetite to rattle off a few favourites that, when asked, I was pleased as punch to contribute for the first time to a certain annual Year in Review.
Purely for alphabetic reasons - that's my story and I'm sticking to it - my abbreviated nods get the whole celebratory shindig off the ground, but stick around for contributions from a who's-who of Strange Horizons' best and brightest writers.
I'm in some might fine company, aren't I?
Going in, be warned: you will very likely have spent all your Christmas money on books you hadn't even heard before you're through with this Year in Review. I know I did...
