What I said, more or less:
I want to thank a long list of people for helping with my various editorial and publishing projects in 2012, but I can’t possibly read out the full list, so I’ll stick to thanking Tor’s publisher Tom Doherty and the many awesome writers whose novels I was privileged to help publish in 2012, including but not limited to John Scalzi, Jo Walton, David Weber, Hannu Rajaniemi, Steven Brust, Cory Doctorow, and the two-headed team of Cory Doctorow with Charles Stross.Other winners here. Particularly chuffed over Scalzi’s Redshirts and the Campbell win for Viable Paradise grad Mur Lafferty. A good night. Hell yes.
Most of all, I want to thank Teresa Nielsen Hayden, my spouse, best friend, co-editor, and collaborator in pretty much everything. I’ve won a couple of previous Hugos, but as luck would have it, they were both presented at Worldcons that Teresa didn’t attend. I’ve been saying for some time that my one remaining major award ambition was to win one of these when Teresa was in the room. ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED.
