Official Hugo Awards logo

I missed the announcement last month, because I was traveling, but there's now an official Hugo Awards logo (shown above), which an be used on winning books (such as -- cough, cough -- my own Hominids).

The rocket is the one standard part of the Hugo trophy design; everything else varies from year to year. That's me on the left holding my award from 2003, and Robert Charles Wilson holding his from 2006:

From all the rocket types and launch vehicles models, why on earth did they choose to design the Hugo in the shape of the V2? (A WWII German ballistic missile)

It isn't; it's based on the hood ornament of an American automobile. See here.

Why are you replying to comments at 3:45am? You should be asleep.

Talking about dedication to your fans...

Anyway, thanks for the explanation.
