Voting in the Hugos

Hugo Award LogoAre you attending Loncon in August 2014? The first time the World Science Fiction convention has been held in Britain for 49 years? If not why not?! If you are, you are eligible to vote/nominate in the Hugo Awards. At some point you will have been sent an email giving you your personal pin, which you can use here, to vote for your favourite science fiction and fantasy novels of 2013/2014. There has been some confusion as to what is eligible, so we at JFB have been decidedly helpful and put a list together of the books that can be nominated from our list ;).

Please note that Loncon 3 must receive your ballot (postmarks do not count) by Monday, March 31, 2014, 23:59 Pacific Daylight Time (April 1, 07:59 British Summer Time).
