      I was on the committee, and gave *High House* a high vote. I don't recall
      where I placed Gaiman. I remember I liked it, marginally, but liked at
      least three others better: Stoddard, McKillip (one of her good ones) and
      the Kline. I think I liked the Kline better than McKillip and Stoddard
      best of all. (But I may be remembering things wrong.) ---djb

      Actually each was better than Stardust with The High House the most
