Nova Awards: 2007 Results

Prolapse editor Peter Weston had barely collected his Nova Award for best fanzine - to go alongside the very first Nova, presented to Speculation back in 1973 - than GoH Charlie Stross handed him a third, for "best fan". This is the special category, occasionally presented by Novacon committees to someone with a special link to the convention.

Mark Plummer was named best fanzine writer and Alison Scott best fanzine artist. The full voting breakdown is as follows...
