Hugo Awards Announced

The Hugos have been awarded. I usually retype all
the winners for the Bureau, but the awards groups
usually put seperate winners on seperate web pages.
The official Hugo site is well done, so I’ll just
link to that.
The list of nominees can be found here.

Bulwer-Lytton Awards Given

The annual Bulwer-Lytton awards, given to the person
who writes the first sentence of the wosrt imaginable
novel, were awarded yesterday. The winners in all
categories (including the sci-fi and fantasy
categories) are given here.
I love the sci-fi dishonourable mention: Rodney
knew that he was going to die a horrible, screaming,
unspeakable death, when he arrived on the bridge in a
uniform that did not match the others, was referred
to only as “yeoman” and was to be sent planetside
with Captain Kirk and the regular away team.
