With Gary only just returned from Spokane and the 73rd World Science Fiction Convention, we sit down to discuss the success ofÂ Sasquan, the successful site selection for Helsinki in 2017, congratulate our friends at Galactic Suburbia for their big win, and touch on some of the many and varied issues surrounding the 2015 Hugo Awards.
During the podcast we:
- encourage you to join bothÂ MidAmerican IIÂ (Kansas City)Â andÂ WorldCon 75Â (Helsinki);
- mention io9s list ofÂ alternate Hugo Awards nominees; and
- discuss Jay Maynardâ€™s article at Black Gate aboutÂ conservatives in the SF fieldÂ .
This episode was recorded the day after Sasquan and is being sent out early. We expect to return to our usual schedule this coming weekend. Till then, we hope you enjoy the episode!
