Nebula Banquet thoughts

You can read all about who won what award. Robert Silverberg's comments as Toastmaster were worth the price of admission. As were my dinner companions. I Shall Not Name-Drop.

Two gems from the evening: Upon accepting the Solstice Award (to non-writers, living or dead, who have contributed to the field) for his late father, Nick Sagan quoted Carl as saying, "Our lives are made significant by the courage of our questions."

And... there is no truth to the rumor that Connie Willis plans to renounce her Grand Master Award in order to become eligible for the Solstice Award. None whatsoever.
