BASFA Hugo Night 1

We've done the first of four scheduled BASFA Hugo Recommendation Discussion Nights, which also include our discussion of Detcon 1's YA Award and of the 2014 John W. Campbell Award. As is usual with these, the first night in particular generates a lot of variations on, "I'll have to research things and get back to you."

Night 2 of 4 planned is next Monday, and then we'll come back and do it again the first two Mondays of March. (I'll be at home the weeks in between and thus can't be at BASFA to ride herd on recommendations.)

Except for our YA recommendations, which have to be done sooner because the deadline is the end of this month, I'll be publishing the list of the club's recommendations for the Campbell, the 2014 Hugo Awards, and the 1939 Retro-Hugo Awards on hugo_recommend after we've finished all four nights. I'll post the club's YA recommendations sometimes late next week.
