Episode 186: Hugo Awards 2014 with John DeNardo and Tansy Rayner Roberts repost

Loncon 3, the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention, has announced the nominees for the 2014 Hugo and Campbell Awards. As is our practice, this week we have a special episode of the podcast devoted to discussing the awards and all of the wonderful nominees.  We are very grateful to John De Nardo (of SF Signal)  and Tansy Rayner Roberts (Galactic Suburbia and Verity) for joining us for what we think is an interesting conversation.

We would also like to thank all of our listeners for nominating Coode Street for our third consecutive Best Fancast Hugo Award. We could not be happier, or more grateful.

As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast and we’ll be back next week with more!

    What’s the difference between the repost and original? Is this just a shorter version? Trying to figure out which one to load for my commute this week!!

  2. The repost is the correct file. The original is a miscut of two episodes and repeats a chunk of #185.

  3. I have to say that I was very disappointed with the Best Graphic Story slate. Other than “The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who”, I didn’t list any of them on my “For Your Consideration” post. It’s not that I think any of them are bad works–I’ve read all but The Meathouse Man–but we’re not breaking ground with 2 previous winners and a short story adaptation.

    One could make the case that “Time” isn’t even a Graphic story; images superimposed in the same space forming a narrative is more traditionally called “film”.

    Anyway, Locke and Key is one of the best comics of this goddamn CENTURY and it got passed over. That just ain’t right. We’ve got one last shot at getting a Hugo to Unwritten, next year; I bet we’ll blow that, too.

  4. The Hugos do seem to struggle with covering the best in comics. I like Saga a lot, but it’s not the only good or great comic out there.
