Hugo Award Winners 2011

Living in the future is so cool! This afternoon, while the glitterati of the F/SF world hobnobbed in Reno, I sat in the comfort of my living room and watched the Hugos while also working on this week’s Short Stories lecture… Even though the streaming was choppy at best, I still got to see all the important bits of the ceremony, which was a treat!

HUGE congratulations to all the nominees and winners!
