HUGO NOMINEE PACKET AVAILABLE
Spokane, Washington, 18 May 2015
A digital file of many of the Hugo Award nominees is now available for members of Sasquan to download at http://sasquan.org/hugo-awards/packet_download/.
This free download is supplied by the creators and publishers of works
that are nominated for the awards. It is free to all current Supporting,
Attending and Young Adult members of Sasquan, and those who become
members before 31 July 2015. Its purpose is to allow those who are
voting on the Hugo Awards to be able to make an informed choice among
the nominated works.
All of the short fiction and graphic novels are included in their
entirety (((assuming Zombie Nation comes through!))). The packet
contains the full text of three of the novels: The Dark between the
Stars by Kevin J. Anderson, The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison, amd
The Three Body Problem by Cixin Liu. Skin Game by Jim Butcher and
Ancillary Sword by Ann Leckie are represented by extensive excerpts. One
of the five finalists in the Related Work category is represented by an
excerpt: Letters from Gardner, by Lou Antonelli. There is some material
in each of the other categories except the Dramatic Presentations, but
not everyone wanted us to include their work in this packet.
Voting on the Hugo Awards is open to all Supporting, Attending or
Young Adult members of Sasquan. More information about voting and a
ballot may be found at http://sasquan.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/2015-Hugo-Ballot.pdf. In order to vote, you will have to enter your membership number and Hugo PIN at http://sasquan.org/hugo-awards/voting.
