Hugo awards 2010: Nominees announced

Official announcement at AussieCon4.

Its fiction nominees cover works originally published anywhere in English during 2009.

Two quick observations:

  1. Most fiction categories have 6 nominees this year rather than the usual 5. Either norms have changed, or there were too many ties.
  2. Several novel nominees are actually novelizations of original short stories. More on this later.
