WorldCon and Hugo Reportage

Two of the things I was doing yesterday are now online.

First up there’s David Barnett’s column on the Hugos in The Guardian. I sent him several sound bites, but they only used the ones that were factual.

And secondly I have an article about some of the female winners available at For Books’ Sake.

I’d also like to draw your attention to this article from the Austin Chronicle. It is by a female reporter who has never been to a convention before, and it opens with her talking about how friendly and respectful she found the fans there. Obviously we still have a way to go, but it sounds like LoneStarCon 3 put some effort into making women feel safe and welcome, and it paid off.
