We interrupted our regular coverage of Hugo Awards and Australian camels for a news flash about WisCon’s cancellation of Elizabeth Moon as GoH. A many-sided discussion proceeded at a furious pace, then strangely dissipated into a cozy chat roasting George Bush. (I wonder if this is a corollary to Godwin’s Law for the 21st century.)
The surprising thing is that there were any readers still hanging around after I declared a strong preference for Doomsday Book over A Fire Upon the Deep, the two novels that tied for the 1993 Hugo (see #4 below).
