Garth Nix to MC Hugo Ceremony

Best-selling Australian author Garth Nix will host the Hugo Award ceremony at Aussiecon 4. The ceremony will be held Sunday, September 5, in the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, and is open to all members of Aussiecon 4. Recent Hugo Awards Masters of Ceremonies include Julie Czerneda, Wil McCarthy, Neil Gaiman and George Takei.

Garth Nix said, "It is a great honour to be Master of Ceremonies for the Hugo Award ceremony, the pre-eminent international awards for science fiction, and to be part of a tradition extending back more than fifty years. I am also excited to be working with a great team at Aussiecon 4, and I'm looking forward to the award ceremony, which I hope will live up to the grand heritage of the awards, while also being efficient and fun, with just the right amount of Australian flavour."
