Hugo Nominees Announced -- Weirdness Ensues posted 22 March 2006 in Literature DiscussionHugo Nominees Announced -- Weirdness Ensues by Xray the Enforcer, Auditor

So, the Hugo Noms have been announced: [url:grqxm6s9]http://www.emcit.com/hugo_section.php?nom.htm[/url:grqxm6s9].

The weirdness? Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys is not on there. It was not the most awesome book of 2005, to be sure, but Gaiman has a much broader audience (and hence more chances to make it onto a ballot) than most.

Of course, TWP isn't on there either (bastards), but I can only bribe so many people (like, one) before it starts cutting into my food budget. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

Other interesting news: AFFC was nominated, which would make this the second year running that fantasy didn't get the middle finger from the voters. (last year, JS&amp;MN walked away with the rocketship). view post
