And on a completely different note: I’ve seen my name pop up on some Hugo nominations lists under Fan Writer. If you’re nominating me, thank you so much. If you’re not, why not? (I kid, I kid: there’s been a lot of people doing really good work this year.)
I’ll also mention that nominations close on March 10, so if you’re eligible to nominate, please take the time to nominate the individuals and works you feel are most deserving.
