Ann’s Hugo Award, won with Stephen H. Segal for Weird Tales, came in the mail today. It’s got to be at least 25 pounds, if not 30. I can totally see how Ann had trouble carrying it around. It’s like carrying a 30 lb dumbbell around with you.
It also came in pieces, for those of you curious about how it’s put together. At the end, we placed it on the mantel next to the World Fantasy Award (the other’s in the SF Museum) and our Shirley Jackson Award stones. Honestly, if we ever have a break-in, we’ll just defend ourselves with this stuff. Throw the stones, then beat the crap out of them with our awards.
