Sep 30, 2009 While perusing the September issue of Locus magazine, page 48 reveals the breakdown on the recent voting on the Hugo Award for the "Best Related Book" category: "Scalzi, with the most first place votes, won his second Hugo out of four nominations. He led throughout the voting, despite Mendlesohn's commanding lead in nominations. Paint or Pixel: The Digital Divide in Illustrated Art edited by Jane Frank; H. Beam Piper: A Biography by John F. Carr; and Miracles of Life by J.G. Ballard all missed the ballot by one nomination. The Worlds of Jack Williamson: A Centennial Tribute 1908-2008 edited by Stephen Haffner missed by two."  *Two* votes?!?!  Heck, it never even occurred to us that the book would even be nominated, given it's large content of fiction.  Ah, well...
