"It's always a bit nerve-wracking going [to the Hugo Losers' party], when you've actually won."

Luckily, not many people have to face this as a perennial problem!

I really enjoyed the Spufford piece - thanks for the link! He really is an excellent writer. The only place where he lost me was when he was talking about the Creed: "I assent to the ideas because I have the feelings". No doubt he covers it in his book, but how he gets from the general proposition that mercy is part of the universe's DNA, or even belief in a deity (or deities), to the specific claims of the Christian creed, is a mystery to me (and not in a good way).

Can you post the bit about Gaiman in the Doctor Who forum, or if you don't post there, may I.
