A quick note for blog readers: I’ll be unplugged for most of this week, courtesy of a few days’ vacation in Big Sur. I’ll be reading Taiyo Fujii’s Gene Mapper and Chuck Wendig’s Zer0es and maybe working on my Secret Project as time and battery life allow.
There’s been a lot of ink spilled over the Hugo Awards of late, and honestly, I’ve been tempted to add my $0.02 to the mix at various times throughout the year. But then I see the insults and vitriol splashed around the Internet — on all sides, mind you — and I recognize that I’d open a can of worms I’ve neither the time nor inclination to deal with. Suffice it to say, I think the awards went off as well as could be expected, and my congratulations to all who walked away with a rocket.
And that’s all I got to say about that.
I’m looking forward to DragonCon immensely — my schedule is here, and I can’t wait to see old friends and make new ones. I love DragonCon because it’s a celebration of creators and creations, no matter where they’re coming from. Something to think about with regard to the Hugos.
I’ll be back next week with more. Until then, be good to one another.
