As was noted another time, our own Lovely and Talented Sarah A. Hoyt won the Prometheus Award for Best Libertarian Fiction for her excellent novel, Darkship Thieves.
She accepted the award at WorldCon in Reno just a month or so ago and here is the video of her acceptance speech:
No, she’s not originally from America. Yes that means she understands us and appreciates us probably better than we do ourselves. No that accent is not Easter European, it’s Portuguese. No I don’t know why it sounds Easter European. Stop asking me stupid questions and watch the video, ya ninny!
