Your Hugo/Campbell Blatheration Thread

Hugo/Campbell voting is now officially closed, and since it was not performed on Diebold machines, I think that we can say that all the votes will be counted in an efficient and truthful manner, untainted by scandal. I promised that after the polls closed that I would open up a thread to let people chat about the Hugos/Campbell, so here you are. Chat away.

Before you ask: Yes, I have my thoughts about who will win the Hugos/Campbell, including in the categories for which I am nominated; no, I'm not going to discuss them publicly, because I think it would be inappropriate for me to do so as a nominee. I'll wait until after the awards ceremony to say anything about it. But by all means, you folks discuss the slate and your favorites and so on -- it's too late to influence the voting, of course, but there's still four weeks until the awards. Lots of time to speculate.

I think you'd find the Hugo Celebrity Deathmatch fun, even if you get kicked in your sensitive parts by Robert Charles Wilson.

In French, but worth reading if you know any French at all.

I read it. I'm waiting to see if RCW was using synthetic testosterone.

Is there anything the Anti-Doping Agency doesn't have its mitts in?

Aw, I was too late to vote. But I'm pleased as punch that you linked to the Open Voting Foundation. I met Alan Dechert and some of his compatriots last year and I was very impressed.

Your reminders got me through reading the short works so I would be able to vote on more than just the novels. I got my ballot in on time.

Here's pulling for you.
