I Can Has Award?

So it turns out that I'm a finalist for this year's National Book Awards, for The King of Nothing to Do. Thanks to the Manila Critics Circle for the honor! I'm not going to pretend cool indifference; I'm all jazzed up about this. The first time I was nominated was in 2000, for Happy Endings -- I didn't win that year, but considering I was up against Eric Gamalinda, Jun Cruz Reyes and Sarge Lacuesta, among others, I can't feel too bad about it. Of course, this year, I'm up against Butch Dalisay, Rene Villanueva, etc. What the hell. I'm still hoping I win.

Congratulations as well to Astrid Tobias, Dean Alfar and Jerry Gracio on their nominations! I have more than one good reason to cheer for Dean's Philippine Speculative Fiction Vol. 2, nominated in the Anthology category -- Yvette's one of the contributors. :)
