2011 Hugo Nominees Announced

I'm attending Worldcon in Reno this year, and as part of my membership I am able to participate in voting on the Hugo Awards.  I'm also eligible to vote on the Nominees (which generates this list) but I just don't have the time to devote to it.  Follow the link to the full Hugo Nominee listing.  This is only a partial list and what I am interested in.

Let the reading begin!
