Here's what I want from the Hugo Awards:
- A lively discussion before nominations which provides lots of lists of good books to read
- A lively discussion of the finalists, hopefully providing a shorter list of really good books, along with a bunch of recommendations along the lines of "this didn't get nominated, but it is sooooooo good..."
- An award in each of several categories that I can reasonably say "Yup, I can see how people thought this was the best novel/novella/short story/short video/movie/related/fan/Locus/thing of the year, even though I didn't think it was as good as Tales of the Space Gazette."
- Or, alternatively, "Yay! Space Gazetteers forever!"
