Dancing Naked Was Nominated for a Hugo!

Phil sent me the good news on Monday night, so other than telling some friends, I haven’t been able to say anything here until Interaction announced it officially today. Dancing Naked got a nomination for Best Related Book. Phil’s really happy about this, and so am I. We both worked very hard on this book and am glad it has gotten some recognition.

Phil is unable to attend Worldcon due to a problem with his passport, which is a particular shame this year!

NESFA Press, an amature press, did something only one professional press did this year – it has two books nominated for Hugos. Peter Weston’s With Stars in My Eyes: My Adventures in British Fandom was also nominated. Orbit also had two books nominated for Hugos; other publishers only had one each. Oddly, Tor, which usually publishes the best SF books and generally has at least one book nominated, has no books on the ballot this year.
