Women, Hugos and Me Elsewhere

As I mentioned over the weekend, I met these nice people from For Books Sake at the Bristol Women’s Literature Festival. They are keen to expand on their SF&F coverage, so I wrote them an article about the Hugos, extolling the fact that this year the ballot has been submerged in a terrifying flood of girl cooties. It did, after all, give me an opportunity to enthuse about Seanan McGuire, Cat Valente, Aliette de Bodard, Kij Johnson and so on. And Clarkesworld, of course. Hopefully this will encourage some of For Books Sake‘s legion of readers to try some SF.
