Meanwhile, at Worldcon, where I am not…


Apparently they did the Hugo Awards ceremony last night.  Who knew?   I would have watched it via the internet, if I’d realized they were doing it so early in the convention weekend.   Well, I could still look at the video… but when you know who won, it kind of takes the drama out of it…

You don’t need me to tell you who won, right?  It’s posted everywhere!  Like, at Tor.Com.

Well, okay, here’s the short version:
