  1. R. Graeme Cameron: Your disappointment is understandable. Where would I go to find the full list? None of the Hall of Fame inductees was named in the Aurora Awards press release. I knew about Tanya Huff because Melanie Marttila tweeted about her receiving the award. I haven’t seen any tweets about the others. The Hall of Fame section of the Prix Aurora website hasn’t been updated with the 2019 inductees — still lists only the nominees.

  3. Congratulations to Tanya Huff (a long-time favorite of mine) and all the other winners! 😀
