  18. Moments before China Miéville won Best Novel, he spoke to us about the value of awards – and how controversial prizes can stir up a great conversation. He also discusses the distinction between genre and literature and his love of British comics and why we still need postmodern superheroes.

    Congratulations to Seanan McGuire on winning the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.
    I think you made an error in your announcement for Best Novella… Palimpsest was written by Catherine M Valente, not Charles Stross.

    This is no mistake. Review the 2010 Hugo Nominees: there were two nominees named “Palimpsest” — one was a novel by Catherine M Valente, while the other was novella by Charles Stross. It was the Stross novella that won the Hugo.

    Congratulations to Jack Vance(94 years young) and Fred Pohl(90 years young) for winning their respective Hugos! Thanks again to you both for showing the rest of us what it means to be a writer. It is one of my greatest honors to have met and talked to you both.
    Have two authors in their 90’s ever won a Hugo the same year?
