You can read all my analysis on the St. Paul races here.
And, hey, was my analysis useful to you this year? Are you thinking to yourself, “wow, I wish this fine person had a Patreon link”? I do not have a Patreon link, but you could buy a copy of my latest book (a short story collection) or one of my two ebook-only collections (Comrade Grandmother or Gift of the Winter King). Or! For a limited time only (the next month), you can donate to my fundraiser for the Bridge For Youth! (Because it’s specifically my fundraiser I can see how much my fans have donated, which is pretty awesome.) The Bridge for Youth is a Twin Cities non-profit that provides counseling, support, shelter, and services (including long-term transitional services) to homeless teens (and even younger children — their shelter houses kids as young as ten.)
Thanks for the insightful analysis, Naomi! My annual tradition of one thank-you ebook purchase per year marches on. I read Cat Pictures Please when it won the Hugo and look forward to the other short stories in the collection!
