Having plunked down my membership money, I can vote in the Hugo awards. Which means I get a Hugo packet–all the various short stories, novelettes, novellas and books that are up for a rocket trophy this year. I’ve spent a lot of time this week finishing off the stories that I hadn’t already read. Unsurprisingly, there’s some really good stuff there.
For a list of the nominees, go here.
Unfortunately, I won’t be going to the ceremony itself. I have friends that are getting married in Chicago right at that time, so I’m going to run over for that, then rush back for the post award parties. Which are a lot of fun, and usually involve terrible acts being portrayed with the aforementioned rocket trophies.
