The SF Squeecast has won its second and final Hugo*! I don't think I could be more pleased, quite frankly. Thank you, fandom, for justifying the underpinnings required by that dress... not to mention what I went through packing it. ;-)

Worldcon was insanely busy and stressful but also awesome in many ways. Thank you, San Antonio, for chili verde enchiladas and prickly pear margaritas and the blessed shade of the Riverwalk. Congratulations to all the other winners, condolulations to the nominated (there really are no losers here), and remind me never, ever, ever to accept a 9 pm Friday panel at a Worldcon again.

In other news, I'm afraid that publication of One-Eyed Jack is going to be delayed until next year, for reasons beyond the control of Prime Books or me. Further updates as I know what the new timeline is. I'm really sorry for everybody. I know some of you have been waiting for this book for a very long time indeed.

Now I'm at scott_lynch's place in Wisconsin, and we are both about to submerge into a deep dark tunnel of book writing.

*we have recused ourselves from further consideration in the Fancast category.


Congra rats, brava zulu, and other good stuff like that!

Regarding the deep dark tunnel of book writing: please not to be eaten by grues. Or even having a nasty pirate steal your plot points and hide them in a maze of twisty little paragraphs, all different.

Regarding recusion: I assume we [1] still get to nominate the Squeecast if we can't find enough other worthy podcasts to fill our five nomination slots?

[1] For values of "we" that include "those who can be arsed to submit Hugo nomination ballots", that is.
Oh, sure, you could. But we've announced an intent to refuse future nominations.
