This year's Hugo and Campbell nominations

I was out of town (in Florida) when the Hugo nominees were announced for this year. I'm sure you've all by now seen the list of nominees.

It's a good list, and my hat's off to all the finalists (sincerely -- I had nothing that was eligible last year).

I'm particularly thrilled, though, by the nominations of James Alan Gardner for best novella, and my writing student Tony Pi for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.

(That's my Hugo trophy for Hominids above; this year's design hasn't been unveiled yet.)

Here's my wild guess about this year's Hugo design: it involves a fleur de lis.

I was pretty thrilled about Gardner's nomination, too. (Didn't he also get a Nebula nomination?) "The Ray-Gun" was definitely one of my favorite stories last year!

Hi, Gabriel! Yes, he's also up for the Nebula, and in multiple Year's Best collections.
