It's that time once again to nominate works for the Hugo Awards. Even though I won't be going to this year's Worldcon (which will be Worlcon75 in Helsinki) I'm still very interested in nominating and voting for the Hugos. I'm not nominating in every category, just the ones I have a firm opinion on. For the same reason, I"m not nominating the maximum number of entries in each category. Here's the list and it will be interesting come March to see which ones make the cut. This is especially hard for short stories because there sre so many online sites and published anthologies that's it's impossible to read them all.

It looks like I should check out this Paul Cornell dude. He hasn't been on my radar.

I'll nab a couple of titles for either our eBook or SF section. The description of the London stories sounded a little bit like the Aaronovitch Rivers of London series, which I enjoy, even when it sometimes annoys me :) I'm also starting to catch up on the Clockwork Dagger series.
