Hugo Awards Night

It was a very interesting evening at the Hugo Awards, including a cool "opening act" of Ultraman fighting monsters in live action on stage.

The dramatic part from my point of view went away early, as Chris Garcia did not win in either of the categories in which he was nominated. I have his two Hugo nominee rocket pins, his Hugo Nominee ribbon, and a slightly battered invitation to the Hugo Losers Party to bring home to johnnyeponymous.

In our universe, Science Fiction Five Yearly won this wonderful Hugo Award trophy for Best Fanzine. But in the other timeline pictured here, Kevin is holding the Best Fanzine trophy wondering how he is going to get it transported back to Chris.

I spent most of the evening after the ceremony at the post-Hugo Party, which was the only comfortable party at the con. The sixth-floor parties are still all fuggy and impossibly hot, while the weather has become very nice here in Yokohama, so the Harbor Suite where the post-Hugo Party was held was quite nice.

I want to write so much more, but I must get to bed soon. I still have one more Business Meeting to chair, and I have to be up in under six hours for it.
