HUGO Awards Live in Chicago This Weekend

Geeks of Chicago, this is our week to celebrate.  WorldCon is here all weekend.  You can still buy a day pass!

The convention concludes Sunday with the prestigious HUGO award being given out.  Here is the official HUGO site.  Here is an article breaking down the nominees odds.  And here is the link you can use to stream the awards presentation live.

With the remnants of Isaac due to park itself over Chicago this holiday weekend, you might want to consider a day trip to the convention to peruse the cool exhibits, meet some authors (George R R Martin will be there), and just embrace your geekdom.

RA for All will be back on Tuesday due to the holiday weekend.

Editor's Note (9/4):  Here is the link to the winners.
