For nearly three years now I have thoroughly enjoyed being a regular contributor to StarShipSofa: The Audio Science Fiction Magazine with my "History of the Genre" segments and my narrations, and I've been delighted to work with its wonderful editor, Tony C. Smith.

Today, StarShipSofa became the first podcast ever to win a Hugo Award.

To Tony, to the other StarShipSofa contributors, to all of our listeners and supporters, and to every member of the larger podcasting family, I offer heartfelt thanks and congratulations. History has been made!

And, of course, congratulations to all of the 2010 Hugo Award winners. (Note: It was my special privilege this year to get to narrate two of the winning stories, Will McIntosh's "Bridesicle" and Peter Watts's "The Island." I'm so thrilled for these deserving authors!)

Thanks so much! We are thrilled - and we hope this means a lot not only for StarShipSofa, but also for the SF podcasting community as a whole, you know?

It's not often as a historian that I get to be the wave of the future. Usually I'm the wave of a couple of centuries ago. LOL! ;-P
