The nominees for this year's Hugo awards have been announced, and its a clean sweep for the brits in the Best Novel category.
Looks like a great list all around. I'm reading two of the nominated novels right now, and hope to read the other three by the time voting closes. I'm definitely going to try and read all the nominated short fiction, as I want to make an informed decision when I vote.
I was happy to see a Kelly Link story in the Best Novelette category, as that probably means it'll be available online, and free Link stories online are a blessing unto all mankind. Also happy to see Lost and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in the dramatic presentation categories. And nice to see Whedon getting his props one last time for the Buffyverse. He missed getting his hugo for the Buffy finale, due to competition with one of the LoTR films. This year, with the dramatic presentation category split, I hope he gets his due.
Expect more talk of the nominees after I read them…
