Hugos they are a-comin!

AAAAH! It’s Hugo time!
Typical me, I’m totally unprepared. I’ve got loads of things I want to be able to nominate for next year, but for this year I’m looking for help with nominations.

What have you guys found and what are you thinking of for the upcoming Hugo nominations?

Please comment if you’re wild about something, or leave a link of you’ve already discussed this on your blog.

Here are some discussion posts I’ve found.

  1. I’m largely unprepared every year because I mostly spend my year reading much older works, a situation I am making efforts to correct this year for next year’s nomination season.

    At any rate, these are novellas I would recommend:

    The Emperor’s Soul by Brandon Sanderson
    On a Red Station, Drifting by Aliette de Bodard
    Before the Fall, After the Fall, During the Fall by Nancy Kress

    I’ve enjoyed all of them and they are all worthy contenders. Having just read the Nebula nominated shorts I believe “Robot” by Helena Bell and “Immersion” by Aliette de Bodard should be Hugo nominated and on their own strengths would be worthy winners.

  2. Great genre podcasts: SF Squeecast, which won the Hugo last year, The Coode Street podcast (Strahan and Wolfe may seem to ramble but they ramble out the best information about stories and authors), and Writing Excuses are all must-listen-to podcasts for me. I also enjoy the SF Signal podcast (depending on the subject) and love the Sword and Laser podcast.
