The 2010 Hugo Award Winners

The 2010 Hugo Awards have been given in Melborne’s AussieCon, which is hosting the World Science Fiction Convention. The inestimable Garth Nix was master of ceremonies.

We’ve posted the winners below so you can see exactly who joined the winners’ ranks alongside Robert A. Heinlen, Phillip K. Dick, Isaac Asimov, Ursula K. LeGuin, Neil Gaiman, Susanna Clarke, Michael Chabon, Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, and Frank Herbert, to name a few winners of only the Best Novel award.

Oh and don’t worry about hitting up Google or Wikipedia to familiarize yourself with the winners.  The AussieCon website has a list of the nominees with a fair smorgasbord of links to the websites of the artist and sometimes even to a free version of the nominated work.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
