Blogging the Hugo Awards

The Philip K. Dick Awards have been announced. The Nebulas have been announced. We didn’t cover them, but the Stokers, the Tiptree, and so many other awards have been announced. What’s left? There’s a few, but the biggest one on Spec Chic’s radar is the Hugos!

You may think that blogging the Hugos would be a daunting project for the blog, but given how much crossover there has been with the Nebulas, it’s turning into something very manageable! As with the PDK and the Nebulas, we’ll be indexing our reviews here, so you can bookmark this page and keep checking back between now and August 11th for updates, or you can subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss a thing!

As with the Nebulas, we will not be reviewing everything, so you can check out the full list of nominations here.
