Worldcon Hotel and Hugo dates

By Petrea Mitchell| January 21, 2013 | Comments Off on Worldcon Hotel and Hugo dates

This year’s Worldcon, LoneStarCon 3 in San Antonio, will be opening up its hotel room block on Monday, January 21st. This is traditionally a day of frantic reservation-making, although the fact that both of this year’s hotels have the same room rates, and that there are numerous other hotels in the vicinity, should ease the crush somewhat.

Hugo Award nominations are now open, and close on March 10. This is probably to make room for an Easter weekend announcement of the nominees, although the announcement date has not been officially confirmed. Everyone who buys a Worldcon membership, including the $60 non-attending membership, before the nomination deadline is eligible to vote. Further Hugo details here.
