my friend, Hugo-winning author David Levine

Hugo Award 2005My friend David Levine was awarded the Hugo for Best Short Story at Worldcon this past weekend. Way to go, David!

His winning story, “Tk’tk’tk,” can be read online.

The Hugo (which is a really gorgeous statue; the rocket is based on the hood ornament of an Oldsmobile 88, while a new design for the base is selected each year; the photo here is of the 2005 Hugo) is given to the best science fiction and fantasy works of the previous year.
