Cory Doctorow makes Hugo final ballot, Tony Pi on Campbell ballot

The Hugo Awards and John W. Campbell Award Final Ballot has been released by Anticipation, the 67th Annual World Science Fiction Convention. The awards will be presented at the convention, which runs August 6 to 10 in Montreal.

Cory Doctorow's Little Brother (Tor) is a finalist in the Best Novel category, alongside Anathem by Neal Stephenson (Morrow; Atlantic UK); The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (HarperCollins; Bloomsbury); Saturn's Children by Charles Stross (Ace; Orbit); and Zoe's Tale by John Scalzi (Tor). You can download Cory's book for free.

It's interesting to note that three of the five finalists are young adult books.

Tony Pi is on the final ballot for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. Others in that category are Aliette de Bodard, David Anthony Durham, Felix Gilman and
Gord Sellar.
