2010 Hugo Nominations

The 2010 Hugo Nominations are out and I haven’t read a single one of them. Nada. Zilch.

This is surprising to me. Not that I’m a grand peruser of all that is scif/fantasy, but usually I manage to read something that hits the list, if only by accident. Last year I got three of the novels under my belt without even trying. China MiĆ©ville’s The City & The City is in the house, but I haven’t read it yet. Jenn is currently talking on that chore.

I was a tiny bit surprised that Steven King’s Under the Dome didn’t get a best novel nomination. Only a tiny bit, though, because while I suppose it could be considered scifi (or fantasy, depending), it may not have been very good. I only got through the first four chapters before it lost me.

So I guess I have books and stories to go find or buy. Five months until the actual awards come out.

    You got me beat, I don’t even know who most of those writers are… I guess I should stay more up on these so I can vary my reading habits a little.

    I’ve been almost exclusively a library reader for new-reads, recently. The only one of that set I could get was The City and the City.

    I’ve read most of Palimpsest, Catherynne M. Valente(on my kindle) interesting but very surreal.
