"And The Winnah Is..."
Noticed Teri's Facebook post about the Hugo Awards; did not realize Worldcon was this weekend. In Reno of all places!

Anyway, I wandered over to see the winners and was quite pleased:

Best Novel (1813 ballots)
Blackout/All Clear by Connie Willis (Ballantine Spectra)

(Yes, Willis was channeling Charles Dickens in her word count. <g> But I really enjoyed both of these books, mixing the London Blitz and time travel.)

Best Related Work (1220 ballots)
Chicks Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the Women Who Love It, edited by Lynne M. Thomas and Tara O’Shea (Mad Norwegian)

(This is in my reading queue and looks delightful! I love Mad Norwegian's "About Time" series.)

Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form (1466 ballots)
Doctor Who: “The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang,” written by Steven Moffat; directed by Toby Haynes (BBC Wales)

(As someone who became a Who fan in 1974, when other people in the US really were saying "Doctor who?," this is immensely satisfying every time it happens.)
