2014 Clarkesworld Reader’s Poll & Survey

It’s that time of year again… Help us pick the best story and cover art from Clarkesworld’s 2014 run. Poll is open now through February 23rd. Results will be published in the March issue of Clarkesworld Magazine.


By the way, participating in this poll can put you in the running for one of ten copies of Clarkesworld: Year Seven. (5 print, 5 ebook). Contest is open to entrants all around the world.

2015 Hugo Awards

Just like last year, Clarkesworld Magazine is not eligible for the Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine. Please don’t toss away your vote by nominating us in that category. There are plenty of eligible semiprozines to choose from. Check out this list.

I’m still eligible in the Editor (short form) category.

Clarkesworld’s stories are eligible in the appropriate categories, as are the stories from Upgraded. (Links will take you to posts that inform you which category a story is eligible in.)

Thanks for considering us for your Hugo ballot. Honored, as always.
