I submitted my nominations for the Hugo Awards the other day, and in case anyone is interested, here’s what I sent.
I should note that my ballot suffers from the limitations of what I actually read, especially in the novels category. I just haven’t been reading that much in terms of novels this year, and as always I’m not terribly current. But I did my best. I was much more widely read in short fiction, as is evidenced by the fullness of my ballot in that category.
The Factory World by Joseph Edward Ryan
“Pearl Rehabilitative Colony for Ungrateful Daughters” (pdf) by Henry Lien
“In Joy, Knowing the Abyss Behind” by Sarah Pinsker
“The Waiting Stars” by Aliette de Bodard
“Biographical Fragments of the Life of Julian Prince” by Jake Kerr
“Selected Program Notes from the Retrospective Exhibition of Theresa Rosenberg Latimer” by Kenneth Schneyer
“Automatic Diamanté” by Philip Suggars (Interzone)
“Yuca and Dominoes” by José Iriarte
“This is a Ghost Story” by Keffy R. M. Kehrli
Best Graphic Story
The Private Eye by Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin
Best Dramatic Presentation (Long Form)
I also nominated myself along with four others for the John W. Campbell Award. I know, nominating myself is crass, but I did it anyway.
Anyone else nominating for the Hugos? Or if you were, what would be your picks?
