Time Event
Connie Willis on the 2015 Hugo Awards
Colorado Public Radio has a long story about the 2015 Hugo Awards including a Connie Willis interview that I enjoyed. Connie is good as she usually is. I had something to do with this story: Kareem Maddox, the author, interviewed me a few days ago in my official capacity as a member of the Hugo Awards Marketing Committee to discuss the details of how the Hugo Awards process works. I'm pleased to see that as far as I can tell, they got all of the procedural details right, which is not easy considering how often people get them wrong.

Current Mood: pleased
