  1. Totally off topic but this Novel, Novella, etc. seems to only work with Novels right?

    Grandpa – Navel

    Dad – Navella

    Son – Navellette

    So whats next for the Novel? The Noveltine?

    I’ll go back under my rock now…

  2. I will admit it that I am a Scalzi fanboy, but not a stalker, and I hope he wins at least one of the awards he is nominated for. And finally, I managed to actually read a book from an award list prior to it actually being put on a list…

    Must mark that one down in my book of accomplishments.

  3. “It is so refreshing to see a nomination slate without Star Trek, Star Wars, or Harry Potter on it.”

    Errr…I guess you didn’t see the whole list!

    Batman Begins

    The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    Serenity

    Wallace & Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit

    …Dramatic Presentation (Long Form)

    and:

    Battlestar Galactica: “Pegasus”

    Doctor Who: “The Empty Child” & “The Doctor Dances”

    Doctor Who: “Dalek”

    Doctor Who: “Father’s Day”

    Jack-Jack Attack

    Lucas Back in Anger

    Prix Victor Hugo Awards Ceremony

    …Dramatic Presentation (Short Form)

  4. I don’t mind Potter winning a movie Hugo. I am glad that the latest book isn’t up for novel. In fact, this is probably the least embarrassing slate of nominees I’ve seen in a while. It is also more representitive of where the genre is going right now than the last few years. I wish comics like Desolation Jones, The Atheist, Fear Agent, and the new Conan were eligable.

  5. Updated with links to Asimov-published stories newly available for free online: “Inside Job” by Connie Willis, “The Little Goddess” by Ian McDonald, “Down Memory Lane” by Mike Resnick and “Tk’tk’tk” by David D. Levine. [via Emerald City]
