Hugo Nominating Opens

Anticipation, the Montreal Worldcon, has opened nominations for the 2009 Hugo Awards. You can find a PDF of the paper ballot here. The online ballot is not yet available, but is promised. Here are the important details.

1. If you are already a member of Anticipation, or you were a member of Denvention 3, then you may nominate.

2. If you are not yet qualified to nominate you have until January 31st to buy at least a supporting membership in Anticipation.

3. The deadline for nominating ballots is currently a little confusing. The press release says ballots must be postmarked Feb. 28th at the latest; the ballot says that ballots must be received by Mar. 1st. But you’ll all be voting online so this probably doesn’t matter.

Dwarf Star Awards

SF Scope has details of the winners of the SF Poetry Association’s Dwarf Star Awards. The results are as follows:

  • First place: “Place Mat by Moebius”, Greg Beatty (Asimov’s)
  • Second place: “Muse”, Sonya Taaffe (Strange Horizons)
  • “Dancing with Van Gogh”, Ann K. Schwader (Mythic Delirium)

There’s nothing on the SFPA web site yet, but we’ve seen this reported in a number of places. Have we mentioned that we’d like awards to notify us of results?

Update: Just got the press release. Thank you SFPA!
