Reminder Re: Hugos and Nebulas Voting

Two quick reminders for all y’all:

1. Regarding the Hugos, this is the last week you can nominate for this year’s awards, which will be presented at Renovation, this year’s Worldcon, in Reno. You can nominate for the Hugos if you were a member of last year’s Worldcon (AussieCon 4) or became a member of Renovation before the nomination eligibility cutoff.

Want suggestions for things to nominate?

Here’s a list of eligible works for this year, from authors, artists and editors.

Here are some recommendations for awards, from the readers of Whatever.

And a list of my own eligible work this year.

The 2011 Hugo nomination period is currently open until Saturday, March 26, 2011 23:59 PDT. Get on it!

2. Regarding the Nebulas, if you are SFWA Active or Lifetime Active member, you have until March 30, 2011, 11:59pm PDT to get in your vote for this year’s awards. If you’re mailing the paper ballot, you should probably do that today or tomorrow, but remember also that you can vote online.

In both cases, nominators and voters, don’t put if off voting online until the absolute last second, okay? Your Hugo and Nebula Web masters will thank you in advance for making their lives easier.

Happy nominating and voting!

 

Fuzzy Nation Starred Review in Publishers Weekly

The first media review of Fuzzy Nation is in from Publishers Weekly, and it’s got a star and everything. Click through that link for the whole review (PW deserves your eyeballs), but here’s what I’m pretty sure will be the eventual pull-quote (whole or in parts) for the later editions:

A perfectly executed plot clicks its way to a stunning courtroom showdown in a cathartic finish that will thrill Fuzzy fans old and new.

I’ll take that. Yes I will.

Hey, spring is turning out all right so far!

How is your day?
