    1. Congratulations on your Hugo Award!

      I'd be glad to provide you with a higher resolution version, if you're interested.

  2. Great photos!

    I don't suppose you'd consent to letting me use the one of the SF Signal Group (I'm on the right - so I'd crop it) as my new Twitter profile pic?

    Let me know.


    1. Congratulations on your Hugo Award, Patrick!

      Yes, you are welcome to us the photo as your Twitter profile picture.

  3. Great shots of the Hugo winners!

    Could I have permission to feature the photograph of the SF Squeecast on Catherynne M. Valente's website?

    Thanks for considering!

    1. Yes, you are welcome to use the photo for Catherynne M. Valente's website. If you'd be willing to credit this website with a link back, that would be wonderful.

  4. On that last photo it should be "Howard Tayler" with an E.

    1. Thanks for spotting that, I've made the correction above.

  5. Hello,

    I have just posted a short note on Hugo 2014 nominations on my blog at a Polish fan portal Poltergeist ( Is it OK to have it illustrated with your photograph, as seen under the link (I've included a link back to your post)?

    If this is all right, thank you! If not, I will remove the photo immediately (and I'll be sorry for getting ahead of myself).

    1. Hi Stanisław,
      You are welcome to use the photo on your blog. Thanks for the link.
