Thanks to the brilliance of technology, we were able to watch the hugo awards ceremony live from Portland, Oregon. The GeekyLibrary crew manned both video streaming and live text stream as well joining the many people tweeting about the awards on Twitter.

Lets jump to what everyone wants to know:

2014 Hugo Award Winner: Ancillary Justice

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie took home the Hugo Award for Best Novel! It just so happens that this was our predicted winner in this category.

Not only did Ann Leckie win the Hugo Award for Best Novel, she’s also won the Nebula Award for Best Novel, Arthur C Clarke award and many other Science Fiction Awards.

The book first came to our attention when it was nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award.

Other nominees for best novel included Neptune’s Brood by Charles Stross, The Wheel of Time series, Warbound by Larry Correia, and Parasite by Mira Grant.

Charles Stross actually did win a Hugo Award for his novella, Equoid. 

After following the Hugo Awards since the nominees were announced and then reviewing all of the nominees, we could barely contain our excitement as the presentation started.
