    Oh sigh. The Dark Knight and “Silence in the Library” get robbed, but I can cope – although I am certain Dr Horrible won its award not for being the best SF short form production of the year so much as being something written by a guy SF fandom thinks is really neat.
    But Girl Genius the best graphic novel of the year? Really?! I think maybe they should hold off from including comic books in the Hugo awards until Hugo voters actually read a few comics.

      Oh I don’t know. I think GG is probably one of the best things out there in regular publication. I see this as more of a “You have been churning out this damned thing, year after year, volume after volume. Here’s your damned award now go away” kinda thing.

        I don’t mean to knock Girl Genius – I just think that the five works that were nominated were highly indicative of a set of voters who really didn’t read very broadly in terms of comic books. Wasteland, for example, is a remarkable post-apocalyptic SF comic that’s picking up all kinds of acclaim in the comic scene, but SF fans seem to be oblivious to its very existence.

    Interesting!
    More importantly it’s reminded me that I loved Ted Chiang’s short stories and there are more than just those in ”
    Stories of Your Life and Others” – and I need to seek them out immediately.
