Hugo Awards tonight

Bacigalupi's book is a hot favourite for the Best Novel award ... but we shall see. My reading takes place this afternoon, so here I am selecting a passage from "Manannan's Children".

Edit: ... and we get a tie for best novel. When did that last happen?

Another interesting thing: this is the second time that the Best Fan Writer award went to a pro writer who blogs.

To answer my question, the last time was 1993.
