Besides having won the Hugo and the Nebula this year for best novel for Windup Girl, Paolo Bagigalupi lives and write in my home state of Colorado. Not that this means whatever he writes must be awesome, but still it is nice to see a local doing so well, especially one that writes in the genre that I am so found of. Needless to say when I say Pump Six on the bookshelf I bought it right away.
