Hugo Awards eligibility

It has been suggested to me that I should provide a detailed listing of the things I worked on that were published during 2010 for the purposes of Hugo eligibility (esp. for individual short stories). With that in mind, the list below details my own eligibility for Best Editor, Short Form and the breakdown for all of the original short fiction I edited during 2010 that is eligible for the awards.

I’d also mention The Coode Street Podcast for Best Fanzine. It is very much an unpaid labour of love by Gary Wolfe and I, and we think sits well in the fanzine tradition. You can hear all thirty episodes here.

  1. My novelette is “To Hold the Bridge”, Jonathan! Not “Under the Bridge”. Too much thinking about your forthcoming anthology UNDER MY HAT perhaps?
