Hill number two is, of course, the Hugo nominations.

They tell you in advance, presumably so you can turn a nomination down if you’re so inclined.* So I’ve known for about a week but now I can finally say it! Ancillary Justice has been nominated for a Hugo.

I’ve been trying to think of something coherent to say about that, but mostly I’ve just been going “OMG OMG OMG.”


Tomorrow’s hill is the BSFA awards. And, you know, while I absolutely hope I win, I can also think of non-Ancillary Justice results that would please me. So I plan to enjoy tomorrow afternoon, whatever happens.

*And then you’re supposed to not tell anyone else until the public announcement. But of course, there’s a bit of backstage whispering, and cryptic tweets from other SF&F folks take on a whole new dimension if they’re posted shortly after you get that email, or you’ve gotten an excited “Don’t tell!!!” from a friend.
