My Hugo nominations list for 2015



The March 10th deadline for the Hugo nominations is fast approaching! This is my first year participating in the Hugo Awards as a supporting member, and I have to say that even after weeks of pouring over the constitution and other instructions, I’m still nervous that I don’t have everything in the right category. But it has been fun making lists, doing research, and spending a lot of time going, “But I was sure that came out in 2014!”

Some of these stories and art are available online, so hopefully you’ll find some new reading/viewing/listening material at the very least. But also feel free to dive in and tell me how very wrong I am, and what you’d put on your own list!
