GG's announced

The GG's were announced this morning.

Fiction Nominees:

  • The Law of Dreams - Peter Behrens (House of Anansi Press)

  • The Fearsome Particles - Trevor Cole (McClelland & Stewart)

  • Gargoyles - Bill Gaston (House of Anansi Press)

  • The Dodecahedron, or A Frame for Frames - Paul Glennon (Porcupine's Quill)

  • De Niro's Game - Rawi Hage (House of Anansi Press)

Hmph. No women. I'm really not looking so forward to reading all of those.

Some of the non-fiction nominees look interesting though. I think I'll be reserving Afua Cooper's The Hanging of Angelique: the untold story of canadian slavery and the burning of Old Montreal (HarperCollins) and possible Ross King's The Judgment of Paris: the revolutionary decade that gave the world Impressionism (Bond Street Books). In the "children's text" division I wouldn't mind reading Teresa Toten's Me and the Blondes (Puffin Canada).

But as I mentioned, not so looking forward to all the fiction nominees. But then maybe I'll be surprised like I was last year. Last year I was really not looking forward to reading Alphabet but I ended up really enjoying it. Sorry, don't have the energy to link to everything but clicky here for the full list of nominees.
