The Last Colony recently took home the Japanese Seiun Award for Best Foreign Language Novel of the year. These awards celebrate the best work published in Japan for the previous year and are compared to the Hugos. You can find a list of all the winners here.
I have it from a rather reliable source, that the finalists have been chosen for the Wheaton/Scalzi fanfic contest! According to this anonymous source (who most assuredly doesn’t have three camera stalking cats and likes sunsets, nor writes award winning fiction and who doesn’t happen to be on hiatus at this very moment), there will be an announcement in the next week or so.
Aren’t you just dying to know?
To tide you over, here’s a little ditty by my darling daughter to celebrate Wil’s involvement in the new season of the web series, “The Guild”. If you haven’t seen it, you are truly missing out on one of the most creative and funny things on the web.
As an aside, I did promise John I won’t go all Kathy Lee Gifford on you guys, but I couldn’t pass this one up. Allyson’s only going to get older and I won’t be able to embarrass her like this anymore.
(If you look at the beginning of the comments, even Ms. Day herself liked it.)
