Maybe we should change the name of this thread to Ann Leckie gets a Hugo Award Deal?

BECAUSE ANN LECKIE JUST WON A HUGO AWARD FOR ANCILLARY JUSTICE!!!!

Congrats, Ann!

More accurately would be Ann Leckie Wins All the Awards

Apparently, she's the only person to win the Hugo, Nebula, and Clarke all in the same year! All the awards, indeed.  ;D
