Ann’s Hugo Award Is In The House….

Jeff VanderMeer • August 15th, 2009 @ 12:18 pm • News

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.

    Nice to see the view of base without the rocket. You can really see the maple leaf pattern. Congrats!

    well done, Ann, richly deserved, was delighted when I heard the results. Presume that literary layabout of a hubby of yours is taking you out for big celebratory meal soon!

    Beautiful rocket!! Fantastic!

    Apart from knowing from experience (I was Ann’s pack mule after the ceremony…;-) how much this Hugo weighs, let me just say how much more *relaxed* Anne looks and is in her casual clothes.

    Looking forward to see both of you at World Fantasy!

    . . . Is putting it together rocket science?

    Also, congratulations!

    Awesome, Ann!

    …did it come with a set of instructions?

    peace and love…..
