NOVEL
# Spin, Robert Charles Wilson (Tor)

Bob finally gets recognition for a great body of work and a great novel!

# "Inside Job", Connie Willis (Asimov's Jan 2005)

No surprise here a good story by one of the con's GOH's.

DRAMATIC PRESENTATION: LONG FORM
# Serenity (Universal Pictures/Mutant Enemy, Inc.; Written & Directed by Joss Whedon)

I am glad Joss won since his movie was not only good but the only science fiction choice on the ballot.

DRAMATIC PRESENTATION: SHORT FORM
# Doctor Who: "The Empty Child" & "The Doctor Dances" (BBC Wales/BBC1; Directed by James Hawes; Written by Steven Moffat)

A great combination of gothic horror and science fiction.

PROFESSIONAL EDITOR
# David G. Hartwell

Long overdue and now no one can say he won because of a rule change.

PROFESSIONAL ARTIST
# Donato Giancola

Like David Hartwell a great talent long overdue for a win.

SEMIPROZINE
# Locus, Charles N. Brown, Kirsten Gong-Wong & Liza Groen Trombi, eds.

I think they should retire this award Locus has won it so many times Charles' house must look like Cape Canaveral.

# Plokta, Alison Scott, Steve Davies & Mike Scott, eds.

FAN WRITER
# Dave Langford

FAN ARTIST
# Frank Wu
