"time travel is like visiting Paris'

Happy belated birthday to nekrokedia, and happy early birthday to sarah531. I hope you both have the very best year yet!

* Nippon 2007, the 65th World Science Fiction Convention to be held in Yokohama, Japan, August 30-September 3, 2007, has released the list of nominees for this year's Hugo Awards and the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. The Related Book and Dramatic Presentation: Long Form categories are particularly strong this year -- we've have an unusually rich moment for genre film, with Children of Men, V for Vendetta, and The Prestige -- and I'm also pleased to see that Doctor Who swept the Dramatic Presentation: Short Form category with three of the five nominations.

* This year's inductees into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame are Gene Wolfe, Ridley Scott, Ed Emshwiller, and Gene Roddenberry. Induction ceremonies will be held on June 16, 2007 at Seattle's Science Fiction Museum.

* News for Doctor Who fans: The Great Luke Ski has a new tribute song, "It Takes Who," available for free download here.



"The thing is, Adam, time travel is like visiting Paris. You can't just read the guidebook; you've got to throw yourself in. Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, get charged double and end up kissing complete strangers... or is that just me?"
- The Doctor, "The Long Game," Doctor Who
