Hugo Awards NomNomNom

2010 Hugo Nominees announced so I lifted the list from some wheb Cite.  This is not the complete list, as I cut out the stuff that doesn't interest me like movies, art, tv shows.  I have read quite a few of the stories nominated this year, but hope to get a look at heaps more before the end of the poll.  After the jump you can
