2008 Hugo Finalists Announced

The 2008 Hugo Finalists have been announced. The nominees for best novel are:
  • The Yiddish Policeman's Union by Michael Chabon (HarperCollins, Fourth Estate)

  • Brasyl by Ian McDonald (Gollancz; Pyr)

  • Rollback by Robert J. Sawyer (Tor; Analog Oct. 2006-Jan/Feb. 2007)

  • The Last Colony by John Scalzi (Tor)

  • Halting State by Charles Stross (Ace; Orbit)

The list seems a bit underwhelming, but I haven't actually read any of those so I guess I can't say too much about it. I would like to read Brasyl at some point, but I have no interest at all in Rollback or The Last Colony.

I'm hoping either Stardust or the first season of Heroes wins in the category of Best Presentation, Long Form.
