Too far from Denver…
On the Hugo winners, in brief.
Much as I love Steven Moffat, and much as I recognize the massive shitload of problematicness therein, Human Nature/Family of Blood was just better than Blink, and the Hugo committee needs a priority check.
As they do for choosing bleeding Chabon over the rest of the pack. Halting State and Rollback are pretty damn good, and you could make a very good case for the idea that TPTB are really trying their damnedest to mainstream SF and make it palatable to the naysayers.
But anyway. At least Bear and Willis got recognized, and John Scalzi even if it wasn’t for his novel. I highly recommend Tideline, at any rate.
