If you’ve seen the results, or watched the Hugo Awards ceremony on Sunday, you’ll know that A Dribble of Ink won the Hugo Award for Best Fanzine. I seriously have no words. Thank you to everyone who has supported A Dribble of Ink throughout the years. If you’re interested, you can watch my acceptance speech, which has been described to me as “adorable” by several people.

In addition to the award for Best Fanzine, A Dribble of Ink also published Kameron Hurley’s We Have Always Fought: Challenging the “Women, Cattle and Slaves Narrative”, which took home the trophy for Best Related Work. She also won for Best Fan Writer. Kameron posted her acceptance speeches for the awards on her blog, and they are well worth a read.

I’d also like to extend congratulations to all of the other winners, and, most specifically, to the lovely Mary Robinette Kowal, who was a lifesaver in the craziness that followed the award ceremony, my LonCon 3 roommate John Chu, author of “The Water that Falls on You from Nowhere”, and artist Julie Dillon, who illustrated the masthead art for A Dribble of Ink.

And, finally, if you’re not already reading my co-balloters, The Book Smugglers and Pornokitsch, please go check them out. They’re terrific blogs, even more wonderful people, and I expect them to be on the Hugo Ballot for years to come.

Thank you.

    Indeed and indeed. You made us proud, mate.

    Wait, you roomed with John Chu?!?! Oh, man – that makes me so happy! John is the best. Pretty much everything about this year’s Hugos make me So Happy!

    Congrats again, man!

    Congratulations! It’s well deserved.

    It was a delight to get to hang out with you.

    Congrats, Aidan! :)

    Many congratulations, and you sooo deserve it. I found your blog when I was given a link to the “We have always fought” article. I’ve plugged that article and the rest of your blog over at the Baldur’s Gate forums. I am an avid reader … or should that be devourer of speculative fiction. Your site has given me lots of new writers to explore, and I am very grateful for that. I also really enjoy the art you feature. Once again many many congrats and kudos to you!

    @Paul — Thanks! It was great to meet you this past weekend. :)

    @Niall — Fighting the good fight, Niall.

    @Dave — John’s seriously the best. Thanks so much. :)

    @Lisa — Thanks!

    @Uraniabce — I was up against some very stiff competition who “deserve” it just as much as I do. :)

    @Mary — Seriously. I owe you a beer.

    @Hanna — Thanks! :D

    @Judy — Thanks! There’s been a great crossover between Kam’s essay and the videogame community. I’ll be sure to hunt down some of the discussion that’s resulted from your posting of the essay.

    @Stephen — Thanks so much!

    Congratulations Aidan! Well deserved. I’ve been an avid reader here for a while and I’m always impressed by the variety of articles and art features you publish (that, and I must thank you for having a blog that is in large font that is pleasing to my often weary eyes! )

  • Aidan Moher September 15, 2014 at 8:37 am

    Thanks, Chris!

    Having a large, readable font was one of my top goals when first beginning this new layout/design for A Dribble of Ink. I’m glad it works for you!
