2009 Hugo Winners

Winners of the 2009 Hugo Awards are up, as of August 9th:

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).

    May I recommend China Mieville, Robin Hobb, and Lois McMaster Bujold? You may have heard of them already.

    Also, I just heard of Dr. Horrible a couple weeks ago, and I loved it. What a brilliant concept!

    Thanks for the suggestions. I’m already a fan of Ms. Bujold – inhaled all the Miles Vorkosigan novels, and read several of her fantasy works as well. A master of her craft, to be sure. I’ll file the other two away to check out later.

    cheers

    That’s fantastic re: Dr. Horrible. On a related note I’ve had Do You Want to Date My Avatar stuck in my head at work all day. Oh, Joss, what can’t you do?

    Joss is amazing; I’m actually rewatching Firefly.
