Hugo Deadline Approaches

For all of you who are members of the Helsinki worldcon... the deadline for casting your Hugo ballot is only five days away.

Voting will end on 15 July 2017 at 11:59pm Pacific Daylight Time (2:59am Eastern Daylight Time, 06:59 Greenwich Mean Time, 08:59 in Finland, all on 16 July)

You have to be a member of worldcon to vote. If you are, you should have already received a personalized link to your ballot.

There's some really good stuff up this year, so do be sure to let your voice be heard. The Hugo is the oldest and most prestigious award in SF and fantasy, don't believe anyone who tells you otherwise.

VOTE!

Hi George,

I don't go to worldcon and am not a voter, just an interested reader. Did you find any of this years best novel nominees to be particularly great/exciting? and did anything not make the cut that you were a big fan of?

I thought last year's entry in the Expanse, BABYLON'S ASHES, more than deserved a place in Best Novel.

Since the Expanse as a whole got nominated in Best Series, however, I suppose the omission is no big thing. A rocket is a rocket, yes?
(Well, not entirely, but never mind).

Of course, I was really hoping Wild Cards would be nominated in Best Series, but I am hardly objective about that one. Still, you know, thirty years of excellence... that deserved some recognition, in my not so humble opinion... but hey, everybody thinks their own baby is prettiest...
