The committee of Loncon 3 have announced the nominees for the 2014 Hugo and Campbell Awards. I am delighted to be nominated for Best Editor, Short Form and to share a nomination with my dear friend Gary K. Wolfe for the Coode Street Podcast. Â My sincere thanks to everyone who nominated me and the podcast. If I can be forgiven a moment of quiet pleasure, these are my 9th and 10th nominations (seventh as editor and 3rd forÂ fancast), which I believe is the most for anyone from Australia. I’ve a bit humbled if that’s true.
My congratulations too, to all of the other nominees, but specificallyÂ to Â my many friends on the ballot: Charles Stross, Andy Duncan, Ellen Klages (!!!), Cat Valente, Ted Chiang, Aliette de Bodard, Jeff VanderMeer, Ginjer Buchanan, Ellen Datlow (and the rest of the editor gang!), John Picacio, my podcast pals (special insane shout out of delight to Mondy and Kirstyn!!), Â Ramez, Sofia and Bees!
I wish everyone good luck and can’t wait to see you all at the Loncon3 ceremony.
