The Final Hugo ballot for 2015 was announced this week. There’s plenty to grouse about, but instead we congratulate favorites among the worthy finalists, like N.K. Jemisin, Anne Leckie, Lois McMaster Bujold, Neal Stephenson, Nnedi Okorafor, Mad Max: Fury Road, Jessica Jones, Strange Horizons, and Alyssa Wong.

Featuring: Merrily Watkins; Lively St. Lemeston; Warren Ellis’ James Bond; Harriet the Spy; Black Creek; The Lives of Tao; One-Eyed Jack; The Everything Box; Zombies, Run!; Hex; Hatsune Miku; Panel Syndicate’s The Walking Dead; Forgotten; Godzilla Resurgence; Monster High; and The Ware Tetralogy.
Cath has big news, Chia can’t follow directions, George has been introducing his library to horror, and Chris misquotes Jimi Hendrix. Can you afford not to listen?
