Hugo Award for Cat Pictures and Other Hugo Stuff

You’ve probably already heard, but “Cat Pictures Please” by Naomi Kritzer won the Hugo Award for Best Short Story last weekend. It was such a pleasure to be there to see her win and even more special to me because this was the first Clarkesworld story to win the Hugo.

After the award ceremony, everyone rushes to take a look at the detail voting summary. This year “So Much Cooking” by Naomi, “The Long Goodnight of Violet Wild” by Catherynne M. Valente, “Today I am Paul” by Martin Shoemaker, and “Three Cups of Grief, by Starlight” by Aliette de Bodard were on the long lists for novelette and short story. Glad to see those stories getting the recognition they deserve. (Three of them from our one hundredth issue!)

I was a finalist for Best Editor Short Form, but the award went to Ellen Datlow. Can’t complain there as Omni was the first magazine subscription I bought and SciFiction‘s closing was one of the reasons Clarkesworld launched. Her work has been one of my influences. Sheila Williams placed second. If you read my introduction to volume one of Best Science Fiction of the Year, you already know I think Asimov’s had an incredible year. I placed third, which is my best finish in four nominations, so I can be happy with that accomplishment. Thanks for voting for me!

Sixty-nine people nominated Clarkesworld for Best Semiprozine. While I appreciate the support, we haven’t been eligible to compete in that category for a few years now. I hate thinking we might have pulled nominations from someone who could have used them. Something to keep in mind for next year.

I won’t go into detail about the rest of the categories–sorry, just don’t have time–but I will say that I was fairly happy with the final results. Even when a winner wasn’t my personal top choice, books, stories, and other things I enjoyed won.
