The Locus Awards will be announced at a ceremony in Seattle tomorrow. Locus has chosen to use CoverItLive to provide live, text-based web coverage of the ceremony, just as we have done for the Hugos and World Fantasy Awards. Cheryl and Kevin will be on hand to help out. Liz Argall will report live from the ceremony, while Jonathan Strahan joins Cheryl in the studio for color commentary. We are delighted that Locus has opted to engage with a world-wide audience for this.
The awards ceremony is due to begin at around 2:00pm, Seattle time. At least that’s when we’ll go on air. It follows a speech by Connie Willis, which sadly we can’t bring you. Knowing Connie, she won’t suddenly find she doesn’t have enough to say to fill her time slot, so there’s no danger of starting early.
The coverage will be on the Locus web site. We’ll give you the link as soon as we have it.
Update: The Locus page where you can see the coverage is here.
