Patrick’s won the Hugo for Best Editor!
Posted by Teresa at 07:29 AM * 94 comments

He called me just now, as soon as he got off stage. The ceremony is still going on. I am amazed and delighted, also still waking up.

Hurrah!

And Girl Genius just won. Hurrah again!

Must go make coffee now.

Congratulations, Patrick!

Lovely phone call, wasn't it? I was especially charmed by the comment during his acceptance speech about about his "unfilled ambition...to win when Teresa is IN THE ROOM." (As reported by Mur Lafferty on the live text feed.)

He won because he's the best editor. I mean, obviously. Yay!

Also, have you noticed, he always wins when there's a really pretty base?

Last night was the first time I've actually been to the Hugos, and the first con that's 'clicked' for me - a very pleasant occasion.

Slightly belated congratulations!

I'd heard something about Patrick encouraging diversity in the award by withdrawing his name from future nominations. Is that true? (I'm not saying it's a bad idea, nor that it's a good idea, I was just wondering if it's the case.)

I'm not sure if it was "future" or "next year", but something was said.

Terry@63, it may be the wrong thread, but I'm still so pleased to see Seanan getting the award. I think of her mainly as a musician, because she's been doing that at (San Francisco Bay Area) local cons for years, but it's good to see her succeeding at writing.

And Yay, Patrick, and Yay, Foglios!

#79 ::: Terry Karney ::: (view all by) ::: September 07, 2010, 01:57 AM:

It's funny. I have a sweetheart in New York, who is close friends with Seanan. When she came out here, we went to see Seanen.

Which was when I met her, and found out I am friends, and have been for decades, with one of her cousins.

So I was pleased to see her win.

#80 ::: Paul Duncanson ::: (view all by) ::: September 07, 2010, 02:39 AM:

Congratulations to all who won, be they Nielsen Haydens, other Fluorosphereans, lurkers or just plain folks. I wish a combination of too much study and too little money hadn't kept me from the con. Perhaps next time a worldcon wanders down under I'll be there to do all that congratulating in person. Until then, imagine the hand that isn't typing this is raising a glass in your honour.
