The Shadow War of the Night Dragons, Book One: The Dead City (Prologue), by John Scalzi
The Shadow War of the Night Dragons, Book One: The Dead City (Prologue) is nominated for a Hugo. This is pretty darned funny as the story is an April Fool's joke, and none too subtle at that. And the joke has many layers to it. I think it got and deserved its nomination as a reward for the subtlety of the humor behind the really obvious slapstick of it. One can't really describe it, you just have to go read it, and it's not that big a deal, won't take long. Go do it and have a nice chuckle. 3 stars for fun.
