Assorted SF News

Just a couple of random items here from the SFWA news page (, which I should probably add to my watchlist. The ballot for the 2006 Hugo Awards has been announced, as has the ballot for the 2006 RITA Award for Best Paranormal, Science Fiction, or Fantasy Romance. (Ask Vox Day about that latter one -- and be prepared to duck.)

Amazing Stories has finally and officially ceased publication again; hardly surprising as it's been "on hiatus" for over a year.

And Stanislaw Lem has died, which doesn't bother me much, but so has David Feintuch, which makes me sad. Dave was a nice guy. There aren't enough of them in the business.
