I was pleased to see Neil Gaiman's "A Study in Emerald" win Best Short Story. IMO it was far and away the best of the lot. This Hugo combined with his Nebula award for his novel "Coraline" shows Gaiman can both sprint and run for distance.

Also, congrats and best wishes to the recovering Gardner Dozois for being selected Best Pro Editor.

I have a lot of reading to catch up on. On the nomination list the only one that I was familiar with was "Cookie Monster."

Oh yes, of course I know who Gardner Dozois is.

I was thrilled that Paladin of Souls won Best Novel. It's a great book, and Lois is a nice person too.

Melissa, I see that you're on the list of attendees for Albacon in October. I haven't been to that one before. Looks like they have a pretty good lineup.

Yep! That's the only one I'd been to until Noreascon. I've been twice. It's not as hectic as Worldcon, and yet they still have lots of authors there.

Planning on going?

(It's also half an hour from my house. Big plus.)

I'm in NH. About 3 hrs from Albany. That weekend is a tough one for me however so I probably won't make it. It is one I've been interested in.

That's a strange thing to say. It's not the awards that show it, surely.

Nic,

Are you an editor? Or just obtuse? ;)

I must say it seems odd to say congrats to Gardner on Gordon's board. I would assume no offense is meant by it but let's think about Gordon's feelings. :-)


Jeff, Do you have a younger brother named Matt? I'm sure that sounds odd but I grew up in NH down the road from a Jeff and Matt Lyons. I think Matt was the younger brother.

Sorry to hear, Jeff. Hope you get to it sometime. It's fun.

Congrats on another well-deserved Hugo, Gardner. I'm just sorry you weren't there in person---I hope you recover speedily and fully so that you can pitch again next season. Your hanging curveball is legendary.

(Pat M., you make the mistake of thinking that I might begrudge the Hugo award to any of the other nominees. Truth is, I'd much rather see one of the others on the ballot win it than get the award myself. Seeing F&SF win best magazine honors is the only prize that holds my interest.)

Mr. Van Gelder:

Your love of your magazine reminds me of Captain Kirk's love of the Enterprise. Warms the heart.

Gordon, actually, I didn't think you were shallow, although there was a remote possibility. I assumed that you two were close acquaintances at least professionally.

It just seemed odd since Gardner doesn't appear to post here. It seems a little different then saying something to Ellen, who does post.

If you were shallow and defensive about your editor skills, my previous suggestion of JJA editting an issue would be equally or more offensive, I would think.

I would think increased circulation would be the prize that holds your interest. To me that would show the most appreciation of your work. :-)

Thanks, Gordon. Your day is coming. Someday, everybody in the audience will be groaning "Not Gordon Van Gelder AGAIN!"

What? I was here first...(Tonight. I'll admit you were the board troll first. :-) )

I really hate it when we both Troll at the same time though...
