Hugo Announcement

Dancing Snoopy

Also, I saw Saturn last night with the telescope, which makes the weekend even better.

Congrats!

I also want to say that I love how writers can still be considered fans of the genre. I believe Scalzi won it one year, and you are definitely deserving of the win as well.

Yep. Fred Pohl also won it a while back. And thank you!

Voting was well worth it, Seanan did well in there in 4 categories.

VERY pleased to see you get the nomination. Now to start practicing your acceptance-speech meltdown; johnnyeponymous has some pretty big shoes to fill.

(So if Chris wins this year for last year's acceptance speech, does that make it a Meta-Hugo?)

Now with more relevant iconage!

Thank you!

The knowledge that an acceptance speech can be nominated for a Hugo is breaking all the freakout circuits in my brain :-P

Whoo hoo!!!!! *does happy dance* You deserve some kind of award! And I don't think they have a "Golden Spork" yet, so you'll just have to settle for a Hugo. YAY!

And nice speech :-)

Also, I just bought Discount Apocalypse on your recommendation, so see how influential you are?

Man, it is going to be really hard to type with my fingers crossed...

I would so campaign for a Golden Spork! Probably good they don't have one. I'd fight dirty to win that sucker :-)

Good luck.

Thank YOU. You were the first person to go out and publicly suggest people nominate me.

Though I'm sure the goblins will try to claim all the credit anyway :-)

I'm new to your blog but everything I've seen so far makes you worthy of this nomination! (And I'm planning to read your books, too. Just got to finish this &*^$ thesis first.)

Thank you! And I totally understand. I think I might have managed one book for pleasure reading over the course of the year I was working on my thesis. Good luck!

This is how I feel EXACTLY. Except for the bit with goblin miniatures. I have stuffed wombats for that. (And eeeee! Congrats!)

Goblins with a moonbase and space laser is one of the most terrifying story ideas I've ever had...

And thank you!
