The Hugo Awards, 2006

I've actually read John Scalzi's Old Man's War and Wilson's Spin. I've seen Serenity, too. Maybe I should have gone to WorldCon. I believe the Beagle's novelette is available at the F&SF site. Good to see Betty Ballantine getting a special award, too. It's hard to believe, but I read Harlan Ellison's first story in Infinity all those years ago. Who'd have thought?

  1. I am in the process of reading Old Man's War right now and am really enjoying it. If it continues to be as good as it is thus far then I'm happy he won the award.
