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!

The obelisk gate
It was bloody brilliant, I haven't read the other novels nominated this year, maybe you have a favorite among them, George?

I Might take the boat to Finland from Sweden, I wonder if there are possibilities in the Worldcon for aspiring writers to find potential fans, or maybe, even better: publishers ready to take a risk?

I have never been to a con and this could be a real opportunity, I would obviously have to translate from Swedish to English, I might just have time to get one or two short stories done with a little help from a friend.

A lot of networking takes place at worldcon, so, yes, aspiring writers can meet a lot of people there... editors, agents, publishers, other authors... and perhaps those potential fans you speak of.

But whatever you do, don't bring manuscripts to thrust at any editors you may meet. They hate that. (It is a faux pas a lot of newbies make, admittedly).
