The lovely people at AussieCon 4, the 68th World Science Fiction Convention (September 2nd – 6th, 2010 – Melbourne, Australia), have announced an expanded Hugo voter packet:
Aussiecon 4 has expanded the electronic 2010 Hugo Voter Packet containing works from 2010 Hugo Award and John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer nominees. The packet is available for download by supporting and attending Aussiecon 4 members to help inform them about the works under consideration before voting and is available until 31 July 2010 23:59 PDT.
The expansion adds Girl Genius, Volume 9: Agatha Heterodyne and the Heirs of the Storm, art by Sue Mason, additional links by Frederik Pohl and additional file formats in the novel, novella, novelette, short story, and related work categories.
Best of all, it provides additional choice of formats (RTF, .doc files, etc.) to make it easier to read all the nifty free stuff–about 40 novels, stories, novellas, graphic novels, and more–on your screen (mobile, desktop, dedicated reader, whatever). Fantastic value. Sign up for Worldcon membership today. (Supporting membership, which entitles you to all the freebies, and to vote, costs only $50.) Go vote.
