here's the link for The Locus Recommended Reading List. Check out the first novels:

Weapons of Choice, John Birmingham (Del Rey)
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Susanna Clarke (Bloomsbury)
The Coyote Kings of the Space-Age Bachelor Pad, Minister Faust (Del Rey)
Ghosts in the Snow, Tamara Siler Jones (Bantam Spectra)
Fitzpatrick's War, Theodore Judson (DAW)
Move Under Ground, Nick Mamatas (Night Shade)
The Gods and Their Machines, Oisín McGann (Tor)
Firethorn, Sarah Micklem (Scribner)
Trash Sex Magic, Jennifer Stevenson (Small Beer)
The Year of Our War, Steph Swainston (Gollancz; Eos 2005)
City of Pearl, Karen Traviss (Eos)
The Labyrinth, Catherynne M. Valente (Prime)
Olympic Games, Leslie What (Tachyon)
The Arcanum, Thomas Wheeler (Bantam)
Through Violet Eyes, Stephen Woodworth (Dell)

Gee, I wonder which of the titles above will win The Locus poll? The rec list is tied to the ballot via a drop-down menu, but of course anyone can vote for any book they like thanks to the text entry box. Please don't take these links as a suggestion to click, vote for MUG and nothing else, and then giggle in glee for being such a clever lad -- vote munging is skeezy and the magazine tosses out obviously contrived votes anyway. If you are a regular SF reader and liked MUG and were going to vote anyway, knock yourself out. I hoping to rank higher than NO AWARD.
