I was pleased to see Ann Leckie running off with the Hugo award for best novel – while I enjoyed a couple of the other nominated books, Ancillary Justice was simply the only real contender, as I saw it. Best novella went to Equoid by Charles Stross, a story about unicorns set in the Laundry universe which means of course I like it.
Best “related work” went to Kameron Hurley’s We have always fought: Challenging the women, cattle, and slaves narrative. I hadn’t read this – but now I have, since the link was in my morning blog feed, and I’m linking it because I find it wonderfully worthwhile. Go, read!
(Kameron Hurley is an unknown to me, except I remember her God’s war being a Hugo novel nominee a while back. I’m afraid I dismissed it because something-something, but my interest is now thoroughly stirred.)
