Hugo-relevant links

The Hugo-eligible reading project continues. I'm reading a novel that I will definitely be telling you all about when it's done! In the meantime, of the short stories I've read since last update, this is the standout winner:
Pocosin, by Ursula Vernon. It has a possum god and a Pratchett-esque witch and God and the Devil and Death, and it made me tear me up.

Also, if you are interested in following Hugo discussion and don't mind anon memes, some folks are facilitating an ongoing Hugo-reading project on ffa. Everything is open to be talked about whenever, but in particular they're reading short fiction by the month. The latest thread is here and includes things like a roundup of the last couple of weeks of discussion and links to free online short fiction published in February. And the threads always have the same title, so you can find them in the future by searching ffa (note: must be logged into DW to use search).

Vernon's Jackalope Wives is so great, but I'd not thought to find more of her stuff - ta!

Ooh, I've seen mention of that one but not read it yet.

And you're welcome!
