I found this via The Alien Onion blog, it is funny, features cake and is the in house blog of Allen and Unwin publishers in Australia. I enjoy it a lot. Anyhoo the name Garth Nix leapt out at me and as a fan I decided to follow along to this website right here which is marvellously interesting and is the source of a whole heap of Science Fiction/Fantasy new reading for me. The video on here features the crem de la creme of science fiction and fantasy artists, writers, cartoonists etc etc for the year and from this video alone I added a mountain of titles to my wishlist of reading.
If you want to read the transcript of the Garth Nix talk from the awards it is here.
As the Hugo Award site says of the video:
“As shown at the beginning of the 2010 Hugo Awards ceremony, hosted as part of Aussiecon 4 in Melbourne, Australia. All the individuals and works nominated for awards are represented, as well as other notable contributions, news stories and landmark scientific events from 2009 – the year covered by the 2010 awards.”
Turn up the sound and set the video rolling.
