The 2012 Hugo Award Nominees. Of all the sci-fi novels published in the last year, these are five of them! (And four aren't actually sci-fi.) But that hasn't stopped us from reading them and giving you our opinions. Join our book club as we talk about five books and pick our favorites. Plus: Vomit Zombies! A unique novel-sponsorship opportunity for Coca-Cola! Our near-unconditional love of author Jo Walton! And what the locusts are reading this year!

Special guests Glenn Fleishman, Monty Ashley, and Scott McNulty.

Yes, Virginia, there are spoilers for the books here. Though we shout out before the major ones. Still, if you want to be completely unspoiled, don't listen. Would you go to a book club having not read the book and complain about all the spoilers?
