Hard on the heels of the announcement that Aurora Award nominations are open comes the announcement that the nominating period for the Hugo Awards has begun. (Why, yes, Marseguro is eligible to be nominated. Thank you for thinking of it!)
The Hugos work differently than the Auroras, though. In order to nominate you must be a current members of the World Science Fiction Society, which means you were either a supporting or attending members of the 2008 Worldcon (Denvention 3) or are a supporting or attending member of the 2009 Worldcon (Anticipation). If you aren’t, and you’d like to be, go here. (You’ll have to buy your membership by January 31 in order to nominate.)
Both attending and supporting members of Anticipation also have the right to vote for the Hugo Awards and in WorldCon Site Selection for 2011.
Anticipation, the 67th World Science Fiction Convention, will take place in Montréal from Thursday, August 6, through Monday, August 10,, 2009. Lord willing and the creeks don’t rise, I’ll be there.
