Hugo awards?
( Using my LJ client so we'll see what happens! )

I really like the novel Family Bites.

As it was first published this year it is eligable for a Hugo in 2004.

The author ( Lisa Williams ) is eligable for the John Campbell award for best new writer.

I'm going to nominate her and the book!

Serious points here.

Only those who have attending or supporting membership of the 2004 Worldcon ( Noreascon Four ) can nominate or vote.

If the nomination forms are the same as those used at the 2003 Worldcon then you can nominate upto 5 items / authors in each category ( so nominating Lisa / FB wont prevent you nominating someone else or their work ).

Not sure what the rules and regs are about campagning for things, so I wont post anything else, just this note about eligability.

Current Mood: indifferent indifferent

Hmmm are you a member then ? I've been trying to ascertain the uk equivalent
of this. Admirable as your endeavour is, I don't think FB has had sufficient
exposure in the US for the Hugo to stand a great deal of chance. (i'm sure a certain youn lady will correct us on this if necessary :-) ).

Since I fell in love, I've been trying to find uk places to place reviews etc.
I'm not up to speed with current adwards in the uk.

Maybe you and I should found AFW (with permission of course :-) )

I've done some more research and can clarify a couple of points.

You only need a supporting membership to nominate or vote so I'll check howmany memberships they have form the UK. Looking at a web-page that shows previous votes I don't think we would need that many of the UK contingent to nominate for FB to make the list.

It appears thet you are eligable for the John Campbell award for _two_ years after you are first published, so Lisa would still be eligable at the 2005 Worldcon which is in Glasgow!

I also found a site for some purely fantasy awards, one of the current judges is in the UK!

I will check the SFX website to see what fantasy awards they do!

I just finished Family Bites and loved it! Pity I can't second your nomination.

Can't wait for the next book.
