Hugo Eligibility for Best Editor Short Form

I had someone point out that I buried my own Hugo eligibility at the tail end of the list of stories eligible from Clarkesworld and was encouraged to put it front-and-center in a new post, so here it is:

The Final Frontier – Cover and ToC reveal

THE FINAL FRONTIER

Night Shade Books – July 3, 2018
ISBN-10: 159780939X
ISBN-13: 978-1597809399

The urge to explore and discover is a natural and universal one, and the edge of the unknown is expanded with each passing year as scientific advancements inch us closer and closer to the outer reaches of our solar system and the galaxies beyond them.

Generations of writers have explored these new frontiers and the endless possibilities they present in great detail. With galaxy-spanning adventures of discovery and adventure, from generations ships to warp drives, exploring new worlds to first contacts, science fiction writers have given readers increasingly new and alien ways to look out into our broad and sprawling universe.

The Final Frontier delivers stories from across this literary spectrum, a reminder that the universe is far large and brimming with possibilities than we could ever imagine, as hard as we may try.

I’m eligible for Best Editor (short form) for editing the following in 2017:

Clarkesworld Citizens

Patreon has decided NOT to implement the awful fee structure they proposed! (If you don’t know about this, don’t worry. It’s not happening anyway.) In the last few days, we lost about six months worth of gains at Patreon. It’s been brutal, but totally understandable. I was vehemently opposed to the changes and made sure to let them know about it.

I’ve worked with Patreon for four years and have come to trust people in the company. This last week was a total aberration and I’m planning on sticking with them. I’m less trusting now, but willing to give them a chance to earn it back. Some of our supporters might not feel the same way and I totally understand that. Several have asked that we provide an alternative, so for the last few days, I’ve been working on a new monthly subscription and pledge site:

https://clarkesworldcitizens.com

To be clear, I’m not suggesting that people who are already supporting us leave Patreon, Amazon, etc. There’s value in having a third party handle the support and all that. However, it pays to have options. It probably would have saved me a lot of headaches this week if I had this in place then. Regaining that lost income will be a challenge, one that is compounded by a $500/month increase in my health insurance premiums that starts next month. Augh.

Back to work!
