I did not win a Hugo

Published on August 25, 2011 by

In case anyone missed the news, I did not win a Hugo for “That Leviathan, Whom Thou Hast Made.”  Frankly, I anticipated losing, so it was only a slight disappointment.  I felt more disappointment on behalf of various friends who I hoped had a real shot at winning Hugos or the Campbell Award.

However, I was thrilled that my friend Mary Robinette Kowal won in the Best Short Story category.  And a couple of nights before the Hugos, my friend Eric G. Swedin won a Sidewise Award for his alternate history of the Cuban Missile Crisis, When Angels Wept.

I was not a total loser at WorldCon, though: I won the Iron Chef Flash Fiction panel by producing a rather terrible pun to win the tiebreaker round.
