Hugo Awards 2009 – Friday Link Love

This year’s Hugo Award. Correction: This is the Torcon 2003 award. Thanks, Geri! Guess I was a little slap happy after looking up all these links.

Below are the Hugo Award Nominations for 2009 without the television and movie stuff. The link love is that I’ve gone out and found every author/artist announcement post. Yeah, my GoogleFu is going to be sore in the morning. 🙂

If you see a little [?] next to the link, that means I couldn’t find the author’s official announcement and I’ve just linked to their blog/press site.

Best Novel

* Anathem by Neal Stephenson (Morrow; Atlantic UK) [?] Seriously…. a .mac personal “site”? Dude, let me build you a website. Email me.

  1. Correction: The Hugo Award in the picture is the 2003 Hugo given out at Torcon. This year’s Hugo will have the silver rocket, but the base by Dave Howell that won the base design competition will not be revealed until the awards ceremony in Montréal.
