A big thank you to all my faithful readers! I just found that Science Fiction and Other ODDysseys was listed on Blogs.com in their Top Ten Great Scifi Blogs list last month. Woo hoo! This month, apparently, is National Blog Posting Month. It's like National Novel Writing Month for bloggers. You sign up and blog every day all month to develop the blogging habit.
Have you read my story, "Troll Games" yet? It's available on flashquake through November, but why wait? It will only take five minutes of your time. Remember Fractured Fairy Tales on the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show? Troll Games is my fractured fairy tale.
The Hugos were doled out this weekend at AussieCon (68th World Science Fiction Convention) in Melbourne. There was a tie for best novel between China Miéville's The City & The City and Paolo Bacigalupi's The Windup Girl. Congrats, boys!
Ellen Datlow received the Best Editor - short fiction. Stay tuned for an interview with Ellen here on SFOO.
Best Dramatic Presentation - Short Form went to Doctor Who: "The Waters of Mars".
