I have to say, I think it’s totally awesome that Dr. Horrible’s SingAlong Blog won for Best Dramatic Presentation – Short Form.    Way to go Joss!  And another one of my favourite guys, Neil Gaiman, won for best novel.  I’m not sure, but it might be the first time that a YA novel has won in that category. 

Now I have to start scrounging around in the local book stores and start doing some serious reading.  It’s been far too long since I bothered to check out new SF authors (I’ve been a bit of a creature of habit, genre/reading wise lately).
