Hugo Award Nomination

I suspect most folks interested in this sort of thing have already read and/ or written just about enough concerning the Hugo Awards ceremony nonsense and ill-favoured nominees. Rest easy, people, this is something completely different. This is a simple congratulations message. No politics here, move along.

cover - speculative-fiction-2012I would like to say a big thank you and a hearty congratulations to Justin Landon (of Staffer’s Book Review) and Jared Shurin (from the Pornokitsch website), both editors at Jurassic London, for making to the Hugo shortlist for Best Related Work with their essay collection Speculative Fiction 2012. The congratulations are self-explanatory I hope, and the thanks is due to the inclusion of one of my blog posts in this impressive collection.

I don’t know if that means I can claim to be a Hugo Award nominee now, but I suspect not. To assuage my jealousy here is a photo of a cup I was awarded in the Cub Scouts when I was eight years old.

Being 'Super Cub' granted me special powers of tent-erecting and bob-a-jobbing.

  1. Now there’s an award. Much better than a Hugo (certainly less phallic). Many congratulations on having your work included as a nominee and fingers crossed that you win.
