Locus Award Winners Announced

June 25, 2008

John Holbo at The Valve runs through the Locus Award winners with some commentary.

I notice that Holbo makes some notes on Chabon’s The Yiddish Policeman’s Union that nearly exactly mirror comments made by my friend Nancee of his Gentleman of the Road (in a not-yet-published review of her own). Not to put too fine a point on it: Chabon is committing artistic suicide by tethering himself too tightly to the genres he loves.

  1. Poor Chabon; it’s hard to live down the legacy of one truly genius work.
