Rhysling Awards

I now have the physical Rhysling Award plaques and certificates in hand. Marge Simon did some quick work to get them to me before that plane leaves on Saturday morning.

My gut reaction was to take photos and put them on my blog, but then I realized Geoff and Amal would see them. So, you'll just have to wait until I hand them out in person and I promise to take a photo op at that time!

The awards will be presented on Sunday, August 9th, at 2:00 p.m. during the Rhysling Panel. Geoff, Amal, and Cat are expected to be on hand to receive them, and I'm hoping that as many poets, friends and fans as possible will come on out to hear them read their Rhysling Award winning poems and receive their awards.

I'd love to see other Rhysling winners and nominees and SFPA members flood the room!
