my Hugo ballot, cast

Yes, the deadline for the Hugo voting is July 3, but my ballot's choices weren't going to change so why wait? Yes, many categories are missing here. It's not that I didn't vote for any of their nominees, but that I voted for just one because I didn't know enough about the others nor would I have had time to do a proper job.

I wish that more of my original nominations had made it to the final list, but that's the way it is. That being said, you really should read Warren Ellis's graphic story Aetheric Mechanics.
