2008 Hugo Awards

The biggest action in Denver last month may have been the Democratic National Convention, but Hugo Awards were announced August 9th at the 66th World SciFi Convention--called Denvention, of course. Two of my favorite authors now have shiny phallic statues:

  • Michael Chabon for the the novel, The Yiddish Policemen's Union,
  • Connie Willis for the novella "All Seated on the Ground"
  • Ted Chiang for the novelette "The Merchant and the Alchemists' Gate"

Do we all know the difference between a novella and a novelette? Me neither.


  • Elizabeth Bear for the short story "Tideline"
  • Stardust for best dramatic presentation, long form
  • Dr. Who "Blink" for best dramatic presentation, short form.

Connie Willis has been a favorite since Doomsday Book and probably has more Hugos than most aliens have digits.
