The 2013 Hugo Voter Packet has also been released. This electronic package of nominated works is graciously made available to voters by nominees and their publishers.

2013 Hugo Awards Trophy Base
We are delighted to announce that Texas artist Vincent Villafranca will be designing the 2013 Hugo Award trophy base. As is traditional, the design will only be revealed at the convention - but we can tell you it's in bronze. And here is a picture (taken by John Davis) of Vincent actually pouring the molten bronze to prove it!
Please use our standard hashtag #LoneStarCon on Twitter, Flickr and other media to share your convention experience. Use #hugoawards for comments on the Hugo Awards.
