September 10, 2004: Hugo AwardsThis year's Hugo Awards for achievement in science fiction were announced at Worldcon, and we are rather thoroughly delighted to note that the top two honors went to a couple of very nice people with whom we've had the pleasure to work!
Lois McMaster Bujold is the creator of the Miles Vorkosigan saga, on which we're basing the forthcoming GURPS Vorkosigan. She won "Best Novel" for Paladin of Souls, her first Hugo for a non-Vorkosigan novel. She's won three times previously: in 1990 for The Vor Game, in 1991 for Barrayar, and in 1994 for Mirror Dance.
Bob Eggleton won "Best Professional Artist." He worked with us in 1988, with the cover of GURPS Space Bestiary, and again in 1990 with the cover of GURPS Unnight. Since then, he has won the Hugo for Best Professional Artist in 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001, and 2003. We haven't had any more Eggleton game covers (our loss!) but in 2003, our Cartouche Press division released Primal Darkness: The Gothic and Horror Art of Bob Eggleton.
Congratulations, Lois and Bob!
