Assorted Links of Interest On the Hugo 2007

Jed Hartman's journal offers these: "Hugo Complaining as a Spectator Sport," where he covers several of the complaints out there and responds. And he also posted on "Women on the Hugo Ballot." This year, one woman--ONE--shows up in the 20 fiction nominees among the four categories. That does make The Mir raise a surprised and wondering eyebrow. He suggests ways to improve the profile of XX writers in the future. Anne/Netmouse is calling for reading suggestions from folks who thought certain women authors SHOULD have been on the list of nominees. If you have a name or two, comment on her blog.

Here's a blog entry on the art nominees, with links for each artist.

Here are the fiction works available online:

"The Walls of the Universe" by Paul Melko (novella)
"Inclination" by William Shunn (novella)
"All the Things You Are" by Mike Resnick (novelette)
"The House Beyond Your Sky" by Benjamin Rosenbaum (short story)
BLINDSIGHT by Peter Watts (novel)
