Hugo Winners

The Principles proprietor is currently at WorldCon where the Hugo awards are given out. This year’s winners are available (among many other places, I’m sure) at Patrick and Teresa Nielsen Hayden’s blog. I wasn’t a huge fan of Rainbows End myself. I did like “The Girl in the Fireplace”, a Doctor Who episode. The writer, Steven Moffat, also wrote “Blink”, this season’s best episode.

    Rainbows End Hurrumph.

    The best Novella and Novellete were pretty good, though.

    By superdupersymmetry, in some alternate cosmos of the multiverse, it is:

    Patricia and Terence Nielsen Hayden

    and their blog is called: “Making Dark.”

    By the way, they are great editors, convention panelists, and taught me what little I know of blog etiquette.
