Previously (lo, those many moons ago!) on the Hugo Project…Lovely ladies and wonderful worldbuilding
I’ve decided I’m just crazy enough to try to read every book that’s ever won the Hugo Award for Best Novel…and, of course, that I want to share this insane experience with all of you. After a 13-month haitus as I prepped for, some how survived, and then recovered from my first year teaching, THP is back in action with a visit to Pell’s World and its accompanying station. Sixty-odd posts of science fiction, speculation and social justice continue!

Warning! Mild spoilers ahead!
The Hugo Project makes its triumphant return!
