[conventions] Hugos

So yesterday was the Hugos. Not to bury the lede, Brandon Sanderson took my category. No Hugo for me. That leaves me 0-4 on awards this year. It was wonderful all the same.

The old saw about it being an honor to be nominated is very true. I was in excellent company. And some real cool things happened. [info]the_child and I were thrilled to give the Campbell tiara to the talented Mur Lafferty. Mur accepted the tiara with grace and wore it with style. Toastmaster Paul Cornell organized an impromptu on-stage tribute to me that made me cry. Odd and funny things happened all day. (For example, misplacing the tiara prior to the ceremony…)

It was a great day and a great weekend for all sorts of reasons. Lisa Costello and I are off for home in a few hours.

I love you all. Thank you.

  1. Was glad to see you on stage and I can tell you there were people yelling “We Love You Jay!” at our live stream screens. Cuz we do

    If it’s any consolation, I was rooting for you or Aliette de Bodard to win in the novella category.

      i have few words about how much it meant for me to accept the award from you and The Child. She is an amazing person and you should be so proud of her. I will be framing the picture of the three of us. And i’m so glad I got to talk to you albeit briefly yesterday. So many hugs, Jay.

        And so happy for you, Mur! You deserve the award, and you rock the tiara.
