This has been one helluvan exciting weekend, no?  Hugo awards announced at WorldCon in Chicago, fan community uproar when the streaming service cut the feed due to copyright infringement (showing clips of the winning TV episode? oh the horror!!), the livetweeting awesomeness that followed, and the highlight of my weekend, the grilled pizza cookoff.

Also, this Friday, Sept 7th is National Buy a Book day, so you should totally go buy something. I dunno, maybe one of these snazzy novels, perhaps the bolded one that JUST WON A HUGO AWARD for best novel!

Among Others by Jo Walton
A Dance With Dragonsby George R. R. Martin
Deadline by Mira Grant
Embassytown by China Miéville
Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey

And by the way, click here for a list of all the nominees and winners. A personal congratulations to Jim C. Hines for winning best fan writer. That dude is an all around awesome individual – great fantasy writer, great advocate, great sense of humor, wonderful father, and just generally the kind of person you want in your life. I’ve linked his name to his blog, you should click on it.
oh, and also?

this weekend was the third annual grilled pizza cookoff!  and after all that brilliant WorldCon live tweeting last night, the least I can do is post some delicious pictures of all the incredible food we chowed down on. More home made pizza than you can shake a stick at. literally.  we had to cook in stages because it wouldn’t all fit on the picnic table. Also? there were epic desserts. observe!

herbed thin sliced potatoes, bacon, cheese, deliciousness!

Chicken Satay Pizza – awesomely delicious, unless you have a peanut allergy.

This weekend is WorldCon, in Chicago. I hear there were a record number of Hugo ballots received this year, and it’s expected to be a pretty big crowd, due to Chicago being a fairly accessible and get-to-able city for most folks in America. Twitter is afire with messages from my favorite authors and editors saying things like “heading to the airport!”, “ready for WorldCon!”.

I DEMAND blog posts from ALL OF YOU when you return, you hear me? I want photos too. Tweets are also appreciated.

Them’s my demands, and I’m sticking to them! You should also check out my most recent local radio segment, and let me brag about my guestpost on SFSignal.

In return, I agree to finally finish book reviews and post them of Maureen McHugh’s After the Apocalypse, and Steven Brust’s Jhegaala.

And while all the cool kids are chillin’ in Chi-town, I’ll be at a pizza party. But not just any pizza, it’s the third annual pizza cookoff, hosted every year by some foodie friends of mine.  Hubby and I have been experimenting with different pizza toppings and sauces, resulting in a possible cook-off winner (we knew it was a contender because we fought over who got to finish the leftovers), and one pizza that was so disgusting it went right in the trash after the first bite.

if ya’ll post WorldCon photos, I’ll post bizarro pizza photos. equal trade, right?  😉

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
