The 2008 Hugo Nominations were announced last night. And I called it: Halting State is on the ballot. When I read Rollback, I had a sinking feeling it too would be nominated, but I was afraid to say so out loud. Likewise, seeing The Last Colony listed makes me feel very discouraged: Old Man’s War really got under my skin and I don’t want to read any more in the series. A more pleasant surprise is Yiddish Policeman’s Union; I thought that was more a Nebula type. Finally, I can’t say anything about Brasyl except this content-free sentence.
Tomorrow: So let’s talk about this merchant.
