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.

Pretty dang awesome job everyone!

I watched the awards through the livestream. Not quite as good as being there, but I probably had a better view than any actual seat in the house.

Robert Silverberg was brilliant, as always, and I loved that they gave the Big Heart Award to Gay Haldeman.

Missed having you there, Jim. I would have cleaned your clock in Hugo golf, however. I got 8 choices right.

Yes, I only had six right. I know nothing about fanzines, related works, dramatic presentation short form, semiprozines, fan writer or fan artist.

I'll admit I guessed on most of those!

Sounds like a great time, and way to go for the alumni--can you pick 'em or what? 8)
