Most time-critical: if you want to nominate for the Hugos and you don't have a Worldcon membership from last year (or, I think, the year before??) then today is the last day to register to be able to nominate for the Hugos. The cost is $50 for a supporting membership if you're not attending Worldcon (if you are, you probably don't need this post) and also comes with a packet containing copies of -- most? -- of the nominees. Nominations themselves are open until March.

Anyone know of any good Related Work I can check out? I'm so mad that last year there was so much good stuff, and this year I don't really know of anything except anti-Puppy stuff, which I don't want to put on my ballot.

Any novels I should read in the next month? Here is what I've read, or attempted to read, that was published in 2015, in order of how much I liked them:

Uprooted (...I will be super surprised if this doesn't win at least one of the Hugo or Nebula)
Ancillary Mercy
The Traitor Baru Cormorant
Sorcerer to the Crown

The Library at Mount Char
The Buried Giant
Aurora (DNF) (probably not Robinson's fault; just wasn't in the mood)
Karen Memory (DNF)
The Grace of Kings (DNF)

I'm planning to read The Just City and maaaaybe The Dark Forest, but if there's something else I should be checking out, I'm willing to do that too.
