Two from after the Hugos
Posted by Patrick at 01:57 PM * 29 comments

Thanks to Kathryn Cramer, a couple of shots from a very good night for Tor Books. More here.

Campbell winner John Scalzi (in official Campbell Tiara) and Hugo winners Robert Charles Wilson and David G. Hartwell.

Robert Charles Wilson, Tor publisher Tom Doherty, and Spin editor TNH.

Comments on Two from after the Hugos:
#1 ::: Chryss ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 02:10 PM:

Teresa, you look FABBY in red.

#2 ::: Skwid ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 02:14 PM:

Awww...Teresa looks so proud! Great shots, Kathryn, and redoubled congrats to all above!

#3 ::: Patrick Nielsen Hayden ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 02:22 PM:

For the Teresa, Tom, and Bob shot, I almost chose this one, just because the facial expressions are so perfect; alas, it was just a bit too blurry.

#4 ::: Dan Layman-Kennedy ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 02:29 PM:

The Campbell Tiara makes Scalzi look like a mild-mannered physics professor who's just been made Emperor of Mars.

You don't get much more ess-effnal than that, baby.

#5 ::: Teresa Nielsen Hayden ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 02:30 PM:

I was proud beyond words of Bob's Hugo for Spin. It's his book, his Hugo, and his honor. Me, I'm just the editor. But I had great hopes for that book all along, and I'm delighted that the Hugo voters agreed.

Congratulations on the win. It really is a terrific book and well deserved award.

#7 ::: Xopher ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 02:40 PM:

Still, Teresa, that's some Ed Cred there! If you like a book, it's GOOD.

WE all knew that. But now the world does.

#8 ::: Greg London ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 03:33 PM:


looks like it works

#9 ::: Claude Muncey ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 03:34 PM:

Again, congratulations to all the winners.

Patrick and Teresa, you were both still positively glowing Sunday morning.

#10 ::: Josh Jasper ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 04:30 PM:

OMFG, how many couches were slaughtered for Hartwell's jacket?

And the tie! My eyes are bleeding!

#11 ::: Stefan Jones ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 04:51 PM:


It's couch-friendly faux uphostelry. No Rent-a-Center love seats were harmed to create that jacket.

#12 ::: Torie ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 05:16 PM:

Congratulations again!

I love that the one picture of Liz is of her (not unexpectedly fashionable) feet.

#13 ::: Patrick Nielsen Hayden ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 05:43 PM:

Welcome to the unique sartorial world of David Hartwell, Snappy Dresser.

#14 ::: Niall McAuley ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 06:58 PM:

Coincidentally, my copy of Spin arrived in a parcel from the darkest Amazon today, the first delivery since Patrick's effusive recommendation here. I have a Dorothy Dunnett Niccolò book out from the library, and the same parcel held the next two of O'Brian's Aubrey and Maturin novels (which I am so far managing to read in sequence) (as well as a CD of Lalo Schifrin conducting a selection of his movie themes, but I digress), but the first place I looked was Spin's credits page where I read: Edited by Teresa Nielsen Hayden


#15 ::: Niall McAuley ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 07:07 PM:

Oh, and Tom Doherty looks like he might be Clive James's younger brother!

#16 ::: Fragano Ledgister ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 07:15 PM:

I would like to erase the memory of Hartwell's attire from my brain, but I suspect that would require surgery.

#17 ::: Patrick Nielsen Hayden ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 07:31 PM:

Tom Doherty's resemblance to Clive James has been, I believe, mentioned before hereabouts.

#18 ::: Lee ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 08:08 PM:

I love Hartwell's Larry the Lounge Lizard look! There's something incredibly sexy about a man with enough confidence to dress THAT over-the-top.

(It should be noted here that my guy was wandering around the parties in a furry-dominatrix outfit.)

#19 ::: James D. Macdonald ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 08:10 PM:

The most amazing thing about David Hartwell's attire is that someone, somewhere, thought that making those particular articles of clothing was a good idea.

#20 ::: Erik V. Olson ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 08:24 PM:

I'd comment about Mr. Hartwell's attire, but I kept running into Jim Murray.

I was frankly not paying attention to the Hugos for various reasons, but when I found out the winners, I was well and truly pleased, and let out a small squeak of joy for David Levine and the Plotka Cabal.

#21 ::: Serge ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 08:45 PM:

Congrats, Teresa. Say, I think the guy next to you was at the Tor party. He was quite busy distributing beer to thirsty types.

#22 ::: Marilee ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 10:19 PM:

Teresa, you should definitely wear more red.

I love David's clothes, they're great fun to look at.

#23 ::: Lin Daniel ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 10:30 PM:

The yellow badge picks up the yellow pinstripe in the jacket really well. *snrk*

#24 ::: John Farrell ::: (view all by) ::: August 29, 2006, 10:51 PM:

Congratulations to everyone! Patrick--Teresa, Robert Charles Wilson and DGH!

(it's been a long time coming--way overdue)


#25 ::: Stacey ::: (view all by) ::: August 30, 2006, 12:10 AM:

I picked up Spin based on an earlier Making Light post (I believe it was the Hugo nominations post?) and have been blissfully devouring Robert Charles Wilson's ideas ever since. Congratulations to all involved on a well-deserved win!

#26 ::: Clifton Royston ::: (view all by) ::: August 30, 2006, 04:16 AM:

Congratulations to all, indeed.

Coincidentally, I happened yesterday finally to look at the "credits page" of my Charles Vess 'Ballads' book - Child ballads retold by favorite fantasy authors and illustrated by Charles Vess - and discovered to my surprise yet another 'Edited by Teresa Nielsen Hayden'. So there's one more fine book I thank you for your work on.

#27 ::: Laina ::: (view all by) ::: August 30, 2006, 07:18 AM:

I logged into Amazon just now - to look up the Charles Vess "Ballads" book - and the first recommended title on the page was Old Man's War by John Scalzi. Recommended because I had purchased Spin, by Robert Charles Wilson, and Making Book by Theresa Nielsen Hayden.

Congratulations to all!

#28 ::: Lisa Goldstein ::: (view all by) ::: August 31, 2006, 11:17 AM:

Here's Scalzi and Hartwell and Spin,
And now let the revels begin.
The stars shine down bright
On the parties this night --
A trio of Toroids did win.

Formal verse! We haven't had enough of that on ML lately.
