Once More, At Home

Home from Chicago and Chicon 7.

A terrific worldcon, one of the best in years. Everything a worldcon should be.

More later, when I catch my breath and answer some of my emails.

((LATER))

For those who could not be with us at Chicon, YouTube has my moment in the sun, the presentation of the award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form.



FWIW, the voting stats released after the awards ceremony reveal that GAME OF THRONES would have placed two episodes ("Baelor" and "The Pointy End") on the ballot in Short Form, if the concom had not decided to place us in Long Form instead. A third episode would just have missed the cut.

Thanks for everyone who nominated us in either category... thanks to everyone who nominated, period. That really is the heart of the Hugo process.

((STILL LATER))

And for those who missed my GAME OF THRONES panel, Mo Ryan has chronicled it with a blog and podcast. Check it out here:
