So I just found out that I won a Hugo for “Mono no aware.”

First of all, congrats to all the winners and nominees. I’m so proud to be in your ranks.

And thank you, everyone who voted for me. I’m speechless. It’s a tremendous honor, and I’m really, really grateful.

A special thanks to my friend Alex Shvartsman, who accepted for me. I hope you had fun at the parties, Alex!
