A New Hypothesis, Regarding the Dudebros

There are dudebros out there in the world¬†who keep trying to paint me as a doltish oaf, akin to Homer Simpson. The problem for them is, in this formulation, they’re all Frank Grimes.

Yes, this just about explains it perfectly.

Your 2013 Best Novel Hugo Nominees, In All Their Quiet Dignity

This was before the ceremony, I’ll note. I believe we all survived the night.

Participants, from left: Saladin Ahmed (Throne of the Crescent Moon), Kim Stanley Robinson (2312), Seanan McGuire (Blackout, writing as Mira Grant), Lois McMaster Bujold (Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance) and me.

I got this from a tweet by Saladin; the photographer is not named but I imagine it was John O’Halloran, who was the official photographer for the evening. If I am incorrect, someone let me know, please. Credit where credit is due is always nice. (Update: The photographer may have been¬†Philip Peterson.) (Update update: Definitely Philip Peterson.)

Seriously, though. This is the best Hugo nominee picture ever.

Update 5:45 pm: See more Philip Peterson pictures from Hugo Night!
