Steve’s Progress Report from Renovation, the 69th World Science Fiction Convention (August 17-21 in Reno, Nevada), arrived the other day. I was idly flipping its pages this morning and realized that — O, the Excitement! — The Hugo Nominating Period is now open!
Which means that I get to remind you — that’s “you” who either attended the 2010 Worldcon in Melbourne or are an attending/supporting member of the Reno Worldcon — to nominate. You will need your membership number and/or a convention-supplied PIN in order to play. Here’s your link
In conjunction with the arrival of the nomination period, I also get to remind you that Lee and Miller have two novels eligible for the 2010 Hugo (given at the 2011 World Convention): Saltation, and Mouse and Dragon. In addition, Sharon Lee has one novel eligible for nomination: Carousel Tides.
Nomination period closes on March 26, 2011, at 23:59 PDT.
And! — while I’m here in the land of Commercial Breakness — those of you who are SFWA members, please take a few moments to reflect on your reading over 2010 and nominate those works of SF/F that knocked your socks off for the Nebula Awards. And, yes, the Lee and Miller/Lee novels listed above are also in the eligibility pool there.
And that’s it for the commercial break. Thank you for your patience.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog.
