Start Your Hugo Nominations Now!

Or, rather, start them four days ago, when nominations opened.

All ballots must be received by March 10th (of this year, obviously), and nominating is open to members of LoneStarCon 3 (this year's WorldCon), as well as members of last year's and (you eager beavers, you!) next year's.

I'm personally not eligible -- I'm not a member of any of those cons, and I don't expect to make it to a WorldCon any time in the near future (sadly) -- but, if you are, it is your duty as a trufan to nominate something before the deadline. Even if you only read one novelette that you thought was really keen last year, nominate that. Every little bit makes the process better.

Voting on the final nominees will follow this round, and then the winners will be announced at the usual gala ceremony in San Antonio over Labor Day weekend -- precisely the time when you'd want to travel to Texas!

Remember, you don't have to be an attending member of Worldcon or actually go to one to nominate/vote. You need only be a a supporting member, which costs a lot less. Many people seem to think you actually have to go to the convention to vote or pay multiple hundreds of dollars for an attending membership, but it's much less expensive than that, and even more of a bargain if the Worldcon is able to negotiate a Hugo Voter Packet of nominated works. (This isn't guaranteed, nor is their any obligation for nominees and their publishers to put their works into a Hugo Voter Packet.)
