I'm sure that you guys have heard that the 2016 Hugo finalists have been announced, but did you notice all of the LibertyCon past guests and regulars that are on there?
Just wanted to give a shout out to all of our friends, and congratulate them on making the cut!
Under "Best Novella" we have LC12 LGoH Lois McMaster Bujold up against Brandon Sanderson (LC25 LGoH)... two phenomenal writers, one award! Thunderdome!
Thomas A. Mays will be attending Liberty this year, so we can congratulate him in person for his nod for his short story, "The Commuter". And possibly buy him a beer! (ok, so it will be from the ConSuite, but it's the thought that counts!)
Jerry Pournelle has been LGoH at LibertyCon a couple of times (along with his partner in crime Larry Niven) and this year he gets a nod for "Best Editor (Short Form)".
The last mention is for "Best Editor (Long Form)", and here we have two nods going out to familiar faces around LibertyCon... James Minz and Toni Weisskopf! Congrats to both of them, but if I could offer a bit of paraphrased advice... "Jim, let the boss win!"
(And to be clear... I said 'boss' and not 'wookie', so no trying to get me in trouble with Toni!)
Again congratulations to all of the finalists, but especially to our friends and family!
