So much dust. Cough...
So what I would like to say is....
In the park on Sunday with Orion.
It was a good Hugo Awards in several ways for alumni from Talebones.
Of course the emcees for the night were Talebones alums (and Fairwood Press authors) Jay Lake & Ken Scholes, who kept the crowd chuckling and groaning as they got just about every famous Hugo mentioned until realizing it was Hugo Gernsback the awards were named after.
Carrie Vaughn, who had a number of stories in the magazine, including her first published story, was nominated for Best Short Story.
Mary Robinette Kowal (two stories in the magazine) won the Hugo for Best Short Story.
Nick Mamatas, who also had his first sale in Talebones, was nominated for Best Editor, Long Form.
Aliette de Bodard, who had a story in the final Talebones, was nominated for Best Novelette
And Talebones artist Brad Foster won the Hugo for Best Fan Artist.
Posted these pics a while back on Flicrk and announced on Facebook, but decided I should give the link here, too, for those not on Facebook.
These are pics of the week I was in Montana to see family for my dad's funeral earlier this summer.
