As previously announced, Harlan Ellison was presented the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award, and William F. Nolan was named Author Emeritus. Connie Willis was Toastmaster.

For a while I read every bit of Haldeman I could get my hands on and I’ll be headinng to the bookstore at lunch time today to pick up a copy of this one.
Harlan Ellison, in the picture on the Locus site (link above), definitely looks like he’s gone a bit past emeritus.
Yes! Serenity, my favorite movie of 2005 received the Nebula for best script!

Via Amy Sturgis at Liberty & Power. She has a couple link about why some of you might care that Serenity is a winner. Warning: the movie review she links to is written by Orson Scott Card whose Ender’s Game series is one I still reread but whose views on social issues and politics are pretty broken.
