Worldcon Artist Guest of Honor John Picacio received an Alfie Award for his services to the field, including the recent Mexicanx Initiative to bring pros and fans of Mexican ancestry to Worldcon, presented by George R.R. Martin at the Hugo Losers Party, held August 19, 2018 in San Jose CA during Worldcon 76. The Alfie Awards were created by Martin in 2015 and named in honor of Alfred Bester (whose The Demolished Man was the first ever novel Hugo Award winner), with trophies created using ’50s hood ornaments.
