As I mentioned in link salad this morning, I hit the Locus recommended reading list twice this year. For all your reading and award-nominating needs, they liked novel:

Escapement, Tor Books, June, 2008, ed. Beth Meacham Powell's | Amazon ]

...and short story "The Sky That Wraps the World Round, Past the Blue and into the Black", Clarkesworld, March, 2008

"The Sky That Wraps..." also got picked up for the Dozois-edited Year's Best Science Fiction, so that story is doing me proud.

That's awesome! Congrats!

But I have a question--how is Escapement not considered fantasy?

Not a big deal, of course--the recommendation is the main thing--but still, a head-scratcher.

My publisher calls it SF, somewhat to my bemusement. I assume Locus is following their lead.
