We are at LACon IV, the 64th World Science Fiction Convention, here at the Anaheim Convention Center in the suburbs of Los Angeles. This has been a pretty low key event for us. I haven't been to many program events, but it has been a great opportunity to see friends.
The highlight so far is captured in this photograph which shows (left to right) Karl Schroeder, me, and Jean-Pierre Normand, taken at the Edge Publishers table in the Dealer's Room. Karl is seated behind a copy of his short story collection The Engine of Recall, for which Jean-Pierre did the cover art.
UPDATE: The 2006 Hugo Awards were given out on Saturday night. This is a partial list:
Best Novel - Robert Charles Wilson for Spin from Tor Books -- a well deserved victory, and doubly sweet since Bob Wilson is from Toronto (although he now lives on the West Coast)
Best Novella - Connie Willis for Inside Job, published in Asimov's January 2005
Best Novellette - Peter S. Beagle for Two Hearts, published in F&SF October/November 2005
Best Short Story - David D. Levine for Tk'tk'tk, published in Asimov's Asimov's 2005
Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form - Serenity (Universal Pictures/Mutant Ennemy, Inc.) Written and Directed by Joss Whedon
John Scalzi won the Campbell Award for Best New Writer, in his first year of eligibility. Again, well deserved. Note - if Scalzi is an A-list blogger, then I most likely don't even make the scale!
Someone else will undoubtedly put the full list up soon, but these are the highlights.
