Locus April 1 Special Report

The Locus Magazine April 1 Special Report features a surprise announcement by Noreascon Four. (It's a surprise even to us!)

"In a surprise move, the Hugo Award Fair Competition Committee for Noreascon 4 has decided to forcibly retire several perennial Hugo winners by naming the awards after them.

Those who have had a Hugo named after them will be permanently barred from winning further Hugos, even in categories not named after them. 'You hear that Langford? You're gone! Outta here! No more Hugos for you! Ever!' "


I thought this sounded really great. Too bad it was just a hoax. Nobody else gets a chance.
