SFF readers have more mature relationship views. It's science. And hey! We're still Hugo-nominated! Will we stay that way or become winners? Who can say? But we have other things to say, like what we think of Jade City by Fonda Lee.

Stephen Richter (stephenofskytrain) | 1390 comments If you lose on Sunday, be sure to go to the George RR Martin's Loser Party. You can go if you win, but they may make you wear a Conehead. Or at least they use to. I listed you number one in the category but I have bad luck with my choices.


Colin Forbes (colinforbes) | 523 comments Good luck at the Hugos. Book some interviews while you are there!

I'm really bummed I won't be there. I was awfully tempted, but I had no one to go with and I was at a difference con last week, plus it's across the country for me.

Rumor is World Con could end up in DC in 2021, so I hope you guys might come to that if they do/you get nominated again.

I still haven't met Tom yet!

Best of luck with the Hugo.


Dara (cmdrdara) | 2702 comments Apologies for monopolizing the Quick Burns this week!

Best of luck at the Hugos!

Dara did you notice how we each said your name differently each time?? 😆


Dara (cmdrdara) | 2702 comments I did! :-D It made me laugh!


terpkristin | 4221 comments Loved the show, especially getting 5 minutes in or whatever and V not realizing they hadn't done "What are we drinking" yet. :) :) :)

That’s how you know you’re drinking the good stuff.

Since V said she was drinking water, it more makes me wonder about water in SF. ;)

Phil | 1185 comments I've been wondering the same thing Tom mentions; what, if any, are the racial/national analogues between the book and our world?

Kekon reminds me of Japan, but Janloon of Hong Kong. I think the book deliberately borrows elements of culture and history from different places, rather than being an analogue for a single real-world nation.

This is also how I've been thinking of it.
