  1. Yep. Started reading Among Others today thanks to the Hugo Packet!

    • Paul, you might like the audio version of Among Others, since the narrator has a sexy Welsh accent.

  2. I would love to read and vote, and am more inclined by the minute to go to Chicon, but five books in 3+ months (not counting that I’ve only read A Game of Thrones) makes that a tough call. Good deal for the books though. John, I’d love to hear a panel with people who’ve been to Chicon discussing their time there.

    • Since several us will be attending, such a panel will likely happen. I’m still giddy over receiving *2* nominations

      😀 <-- This is giddy me

      • Cool. Congratulations on your nominations. I listen to a lot of writing podcasts, so I appreciate your show putting out all the content. You’ve inspired me to do a panel on my show, now to figure out a topic. Anyway, high five multiple Hugo Award nominee SF Signal!

  3. I hope Sfsignal is in the Hugo packet.

    • It will be!

      The hard working folks at ChiCon are experiencing technical difficulties with the fanzine part of the packet. It will be released as soon as they are able to solve the problem with their web host.

      But hey, you’re a longtime reader, Tam, so it’s stuff you’ve seen before. 🙂

    Just signed up as a Supporting Membership. I’d love to go, but finances and time off from work make it impossible. I’ll be downloading the packet this weekend (home is on dial-up) and making a big effort to get things read before the end of July.
