Cory's I, Robot wins the Locus Award!

The Locus Awards for science fiction and fantasy were just announced, and my story I, Robot won for best novelette! Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me, and to Eileen Gunn for publishing it and for delivering the acceptance speech I reproduce below. This is a stellar card of winners -- Neil Gaiman for best fantasy novel for Anansi Boys, Charlie Stross for best sf novel for Accelerando, Kelly Link for best novella for Magic for Beginners and many others besides.

I, Robot is a finalist for the 2005 Hugo Awards too -- fingers crossed!

This story literally could not have been written except for the kind encouragement and dear friendship of Pat York. Pat was a brilliant sf writer and a relentless critiquer who made everything I wrote better and my life warmer. She was killed last year in a car wreck. I miss her every day. Thank you, Pat.

Thank you to everyone who selected this story for this honour, and to Eileen Gunn for publishing it, and for Eando Binder for giving both me and Asimov such a great title to nick.
