We just finished watching the Livestream of the Hugo Awards at LonCon. While Livestream is not the next best thing to being there, it was still fun to watch. We both spontaneously clapped when Ann Leckie won Best Novel for Ancillary Justice. That book was positively awesome and deserves every single award that’s been thrown its way.
It was also terrific to see the attempt at Hugo Ballot stuffing by the self-proclaimed defenders of the old guard go down in flames.
However, it’s too bad that all the various nominations for Doctor Who related episodes cancelled each other out. (We still need to watch Game of Thrones).
As much fun as NASFiC was, we missed going to WorldCon this year. Next year in Spokane!
