I decided after the big kerfluffle over the Hugo Awards this year to do my due diligence and make sure my voice is heard during next year's nomination process. Toward that end, I've started compiling a tentative list of things I might nominate, definitely subject to change. I know that most of my LJ/DW friends are Highlander and viddng-related, so this might not meant that much to anyone else. But if you plan on attending next year's Worldcon, MidAmeriCon, or are might be getting a supporting membership for Hugo voting, feel free to consider these works and suggestions of great stuff I might want to read, watch or listen to, especially short fiction. I haven't been reading enough short stories, novellas and so forth and I'm always eager to find stuff from writers who know their shit.

The End of All Things by John Scalzi (I was going to nominate this, but Scalzi has asked folks to skip his works this year)
