So is Worldcon.
My daughter's first event was at 10 days old. ┬áShe's 17, has been to 17 Pennsics, 15 Windycons, 17 Marcons, dozens of Capricons, Libertycons, numerous other cons as one-offs. She runs my booth when I'm on panels. ┬áShe runs my booth at Comic and Anime cons, because she speaks that language. ┬áShe reads Molly Harper, Tamora Pierce, TA Barron, Piers Anthony, occasional Niven, Heinlein, Burroughs, lots of manga, some comics, she games a bit, cosplays.┬á
She has probably been to more events and conventions than you.
Today, she asked me, "So how do you get a Hugo?"
I explained that last year's Worldcon members, and this year's, can nominate, and this year's can vote and then nominate for next year, either supporting or attending.
She replied, "That's it? ┬áFrom a small convention like that?" (She just finished running my booth at Indy Comic Con, with 30,000 attendees.)
Raised in fandom, child of an author who's been published since she was five, a dealer and attendee since before she was born, she:
A) Didn't really know what the Hugos are, and
2: Finds Worldcon to be small, unimpressive and not of note.
I guess she's the wrong kind of fan, too.
Don't worry. In twenty years, all 50 Worldcon attendees can vote each other a Hugo and be impressed with each other.
