Picks for best covers
(recycling already uploaded graphics 4TW)

Of the novels I have read Brasyl and Halting State and of the two I’d lean to Halting State. Of the rest of the novel nominees, I’ll see if I can pick them up in the future. For the shorter length, I have read all the ones from Asimov’s but none of the others.
