The Hugo nominees are out and we love them all, we kick off the Hum and the Shiver with music, and a spider that looks like a sorting hat.
WHAT ARE WE DRINKING?
Tom: Lifeway Kefir
terpkrisin: Hugo nominees are out, including some books S&L has read or authors and series that we've read.
All the Birds in the Sky
A Closed and Common Orbit
The Obelisk Gate
More interesting to me, I actually *know* one of the editors nominated. I'm very happy for a friend to be nominated. :)
Aaron: This year's Geeks Doing Good campaign just went up (6 days). mong the swag is stuff for the Iron Druid Chronicles, The Kingkiller Chronicles, The Dresden Files, and a JoCo cruise ticket raffle.
