the Hugo Voters Packet, already packed to the gills with nominated works, has expanded to include additional nominated works as well as many of the previously added works in new formats that play nice with your eBook readers, and so on. All the additions and additional formats are right here for your persual, and to get access to the newly expanded packet, all you need to do is get a membership to AussieCon4, either of the attending or supporting variety. The supporting membership is just $50 US and allows you to vote for the Hugos as well (which indeed, is the whole point of the packet: to get you the nominated works so you can make an informed vote). People who previously got memberships are able to access the new material as well.You have until July 31st to vote, which is still more than enough time to do a whole stack o’ reading. Get to it!

Is there a limit to the numbers of pictures in one post?Yes there is. Anyway, here is the text list of the nominees. I figure this would be good for anyone with an e-reader.

I've read the Batman on there. I was a few chapters into the Audiobook of Boneshaker. I think I read somewhere that there is a sequel to that. Otherwise, I have the Wind Up Girl on order from the library.

 

*shrug* If I had an E-reader, I'd go for this.
