10 Comments on WINNERS: 2013 Hugo Awards

  1. Congratulations! Fanzine, though? That’s weird, but an Hugo is an Hugo!

    I hope the hugo award people eventually create a “website” category…

    Redshirts? Wow.

  2. Congrats SF Signal!

    Two other notes:
    I’m not surprised by Redshirts winning, but boy is it an awful book. Also, Dr. Who’s long reign of terror is over!

  3. Congrats on your Hugo SF Signal. You folks deserve it.

  4. Awesome news — congrats to the SF Signal team & all the winners.

  5. Woohoo! Yah SF Signal! Work it till the bagels fall out!
