I'm back from Worldcon, and trying to scramble out from the pile of paper (and the post-con brainfog).
Others have more succinctly covered the Hugo, etc. results, so Congratulations to David Hartwell, who edits our YEAR'S BEST anthologies, and finally broke his Susan Lucci-esque nomination run!Also congratulations to John Picacio, who won the Chesley Award for Artistic Achievement! Not to mention Donato Giancola and all of the other winners and nominees for all of their works.
The Eos panel was a big success--more than 100 people attended, which was fabulous--and our party went extremely well. I got to meet upcoming author Vicki Pettersson for the first time, chat with Eos authors Alma Alexander, Martha Wells (who saw Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and the Black Pearl at Redondo Beach--very cool), Elaine Isaak, upcoming anthology editors Gardner Dozois and Jonathan Strahan, and more.
For more detailed Worldcon blogs, there's Locus Online, Emerald City, Andrew Wheeler, and more.
Plus, as many people have noted, Pluto is no longer a planet. ?! (I go away for one Worldcon, and...)
Speaking of Worldcon, Lois McMaster Bujold will be the Guest of Honor for Worldcon 2008, in Denver. Congratulations Lois!
More tk shortly...
