DisCon III Hugo Voter Packet Available

DisCon III notified members today that the Hugo Voter Packet is available to download at the members’s area.

This download of materials from Hugo Award finalists is supplied free of charge as a courtesy by creators, publishers, and studios. The purpose is to allow those who are voting on the Hugo Awards to make an informed choice among the finalists. We deeply appreciate the publishers, studios, authors, artists, editors, and other creators who have generously provided their works to this year’s Hugo Voter Packet. We also ask that you honor publishers’ and creators’ request that you reserve these copies for your personal use only and that you do not share these works with non-members of DisCon III.

The committee has created a highly convenient index PDF for each category showing the works and formats available.

The following checklist is based on the committee’s indexes, so what is in the PDFs or available through widgets, or a password to a site where the work is hosted, members will have to discover for themselves.

If a finalist has no material in the packet, they are not listed below.

  1. Also thanks from me, one item where the mobifile did break the conversation from PDF and the permision to fix it should be not so hard to get is from Alasdair Stuart, his PDF looks very different from the Mobifile.

  2. The packet’s been updated in
    Novelette / Series / Editor, Short Form / Fancast / Video Game
    per a recent email.

    Can someone summarize the substantive changes?
