No Hugo for Me

A full list of the winners is over at, and some of my reactions are over at Whatever, but really — I’m OK with this. I honestly never expected my little short story to do as well as it has. I mean, really, nominated for the Hugo and the Nebula? Being nominated isn’t just […]

Wibble Weekend

There are no words to describe how stunned and thrilled I am by this. (Well, “stunned and thrilled” come close.) Seriously, ya’ll, this has been a banner year and it’s […]
