Read this year's Hugo-nominated short stories online


The Hugo awards are an annual science fiction and fantasy award given in a large variety of categories (best novel, short story, dramatic presentation, et cetera). This year, all of the stories which are on the official Hugo ballot are available online for your reading pleasure. So, if you like science fiction and fantasy, here are a few of the better stories of the year.
The Homecoming by Mike Resnick 
Movement by Nancy Fulda 
The Paper Menagerie by Ken Liu 
I got the heads up and the story links from John Scalzi's blog. If you enjoy science fiction at all you will enjoy both his blog and his books. 

EDIT: Here are some more, some for the Nebula awards also, from Asimov's online. Thanks to Austin Ross for the link!
