Ancillary Justice wins Arthur C Clarke 2014

Whoopee… Ann Leckie has won the Arthur C Clarke award for this year – it’s nice to see a novel from a computer / artificial intelligence  viewpoint doing so… I know how hard it is to do without defaulting it to a human – see my short story ‘Agents of Repair’ (published 2010) for the basic simple artificial intelligence and of course my C.A.T. series (C.A.T. published 2011, Neptune’s Angel, 2012, and Guard Cat published 2013) for a cat-like artificial intelligence. So yes, it is an ambitious novel and one that would have been hard to write. So yes, Ann deserves the win. Congratulations!
