2008 Hugo Nominations up

The full list.

There are some things I'm pleased about (The Arrival for Best Related Book! *waves rooting flag*), but my principal reaction to the Novel list is to be glad I'm not voting this year. I plan to read The Yiddish Policeman's Union and Brasyl, but my reaction to the other three—Rollback (Sawyer), The Last Colony (Scalzi), and Halting State (Stross)—is a collective "enh, more of the same." For personal, just finishing breakfast values thereof, though I suspect this is also affected by not seeing any of my novel nominees on the list.

(Post-shower clarification about the three S's: I'm allergic to Stross's fiction, and have decided not to read Scalzi's fiction for reasons that—trust me—have no application or relevance to anyone else. I don't think I need to explan about Sawyer.)
