And now a plug: I got to read all five of these, plus many other fine books, for free as an Endeavour Award volunteer! And you could be one for next year's award!
In order to pick the nominees from all the books submitted for the award, each book has to be read and scored by 7 different people. With more and more books submitted each year, there is a need for more and more people to help read them. If you are a Portland-area resident with a taste for a wide range of sf, why not contact the Endeavour committee and volunteer to read a few books?
