My Hugo Nominees For Best Fan Writer

Mine is mostly a cut and paste of Martin Lewis’ list except I’ve swapped out two of his for two of my own. (I should say that I would normally nominate Requires Hate – but I don’t believe she was as prolific in 2013. That said she’d be number six on my list). So here …

My Hugo Nominees For Best Novel

January is here and people are talking about their Hugo nominations. As has become tradition I’m going to make a half assed attempt to tell you what I’ll be nominating. I’ll even have a wild crack at predicting who will actually appear on the ballot. By the way, anyone else not yet received their Hugo …

13 random and rambling thoughts about the Hugo Awards and one HUGE THANK YOU!

The Hugo Awards were announced earlier today.  The winners can be found here and the all important stats can be found here. In no particular order here are my thoughts on the results: Apparently I’m not allowed to blame Ustream for the shitty video coverage.  It had something to do with the Hotel’s WiFi… I …

Hugo Thoughts (Part Two)

Yesterday saw another interesting post on this years Hugo ballot by Dribble of Ink’sAidan Moher. In the comments to his well thought out piece, Shan states that: There’s a lot of posting going on this year about the Hugos but it all comes back to the same point: this is a popularity contest.

Hugo Thoughts (Part One)

On his blog, Staffer’s Book Review, Justin Landon describes the Hugo Awards as utter twaddle. I understand the frustration. One look at this years ballot and you can’t but be overcome by a feeling of deja vu. The titles of the novels or stories might be different, but the names look awfully familiar. Yes, there’s …

HUGO HUGO HUGO (and best fan writer)

So I’ve just submitted my nominations for the Hugo Awards. I know I can update them over the next few days, but unless something suddenly pops into my head, it’s unlikely I’ll be adding anything. A few days back I mentioned the comics I’d be nominating, so I thought I’d inspire you with the fan …

Delayed Hugo Post

It’s a delayed post because frankly I don’t have much to say. For anyone who still has no idea who won, you can find the winners here. I was surprised to see Jo Walton walk away with Best Novel for Among Others. I genuinely expected GRRM, with his strong fanbase, to have his one in …
