Escape Pod is currently podcasting the short fiction Hugo nominees. Since two of them were originally podcast here at Clarkesworld by Kate Baker, they approached us to see if they could re-podcast our recordings. The first of those re-podcasts (is that even a word?) is up now:
"Non-Zero Probabilities" by N.K. Jemisin can be heard at Escape Pod here… or for those purists who want the "first edition" you can still check it out at Clarkesworld.
It’s a pleasure to be working with the Escape Pod crew and I hope you enjoy the show. Like what you here? Why not subscribe to the Escape Pod and Clarkesworld podcasts? Don’t know how? Ask you questions here. We’ll help you get set up.
I am thrilled to announce that Clarkesworld Magazine has been nominated for a Hugo Award in the Best Semiprozine category. This is an incredible honor and we are extremely grateful to those of you who supported us in the nomination process. Thank you!
But wait, there’s more good news…
"Spar" by Kij Johnson and "Non-Zero Probabilities" by N. K. Jemisin are nominees in the Best Short Story category. This is Kij’s second BSSH nomination, Nora’s first Hugo nomination and the first time any Clarkesworld stories have been nominated. Congratulations to Kij and Nora!
I’m also very pleased to Lezli Robyn among this year’s nominees for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. Lezli’s first published story, "Idle Roomer" (with Mike Resnick), was published in our November 2008 issue. Good luck Lezli!
