Hugo Nominations Open

The Nominating Period for this year’s Hugo Awards is now open. A PDF version of the ballot is available on the Denvention 3 web site here. An online ballot will apparently be available soon.

Of course you probably won’t want to be casting your ballots just yet. The deadline for nominations is March 1st, so you have two months in which to frantically scour the recommendation lists and finish your 2007 reading. Remember, however, that in order to nominate you have to have been a member of Nippon 2007, or become a member of Denvention 3 before January 31st. If you don’t have a membership yet you can buy one here.

Our recommendation lists are coming together nicely. You can find them here. We will be doing feature posts on each category through January and some polls in February. Some of the categories are, of course, for the Locus and World Fantasy Awards rather than the Hugos, so we’ll leave discussing them until later.
