Just a quick post to say that a healthy number of genre novels have been nominated for the Guardian book blog's "Not the Booker" award - and voting for the shortlist ends at 12:00 am GMT, so you've not got long to get your vote in if you want to do so.
The genre novels nominated are as follows:
Dan Abnett – Triumff
Tom Fletcher – The Leaping
Peter F Hamilton – The Evolutionary Void
Guy Gavriel Kay – Under Heaven
MD Lachlan – Wolfsangel
Margo Lanagan – Tender Morsels
Ian McDonald – The Dervish House
China Miéville – Kraken
Mark Millar and John Romita Junior – Kick Ass
Bryan Lee O'Malley – Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour
KJ Parker – The Folding Knife
I think that's all of them, but do feel free to point out any I've missed.
