Worldcon Sunday (briefly)

For a moment, it felt as if everyone I'd ever met in the UK was winning Hugos last night. If only the rest of you had had the good sense to be nominated... frostfox won best fan artist. autopope (met over dinner on Wednesday) won best novella. drplokta and co. won best fanzine. And fjm and chilperic won best related book.

I haven't met her (although I went to a panel she was on), but Susanna Clarke won best novel for Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell.

The ceremony set a record as the shortest Hugo ceremony ever, finishing around the one hour and thirty minute mark.

P.S. Saturday's masquerade not only started on time, there were never any real delays, the judges were ready when the halftime show was over, and it finished promptly. I am extremely impressed with the logistics at this Worldcon.
