Ultraman Hugo award

Today in my continuing series of photos from my travels, Patrick Nielsen Hayden's 2007 Hugo Award for Best Editor, on proud display at Tor Books in the Flatiron Building in Manhattan. I've fondled a lot of Hugos in my day, but this Ultraman one -- given out at the first-ever Japanese Worldcon in Yokohama -- is easily the coolest one EVAR. See also my gallery of photos from the ceremony. Link


  1. I agree the Ultraman Hugo is pretty neat.

    However, my favorite Hugo statue ever is still the Magicon statue:

    It’s got a starry background and a small piece of a gantry from NASA!

  2. I was not aware that Hugo trophies were done as a variation on a theme, rather than the same thing each year. Is there a gallery of the trophies (or at least the (particularly) cool ones?

  3. Apparently, some old school skiffy fans are opposed to the Ultraman Hugo, saying a commercial character has no place on the award.
