I totally forgot these were happening. A lot of great nominees; there seems to be, at least to me, an unusual number of non-white authors/works with non-white main characters. Sadly, most of them did not win.
- Novel: This reminded me to put Among Others on hold.
- Short Story: I preferred E. Lily Yu’s story, but that’s just me.
- Dramatic Presentation: As usual, goes to a Doctor Who episode, because fuck you that’s why. I was rooting for Attack the Block, which gets all the points for doing a POC-centric alien invasion story.
- Solstice Award: A kind of lifetime achievement thing which can be presented posthumously, which is why Octavia Butler is a co-winner.
- tl:dr; Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.
