Hugo Nominations

In light of the fact that Hugo nominations are due by midnight tomorrow (Tuesday 10, 2015 through 11:59 pm PDT), I don't want to wait until the end of March for my next post about short fiction. I've been spending a lot of time reading in the last week or two, and have tried to focus somewhat on 2014 publications so I could make intelligent decisions.

The following are the works I'm currently considering for nomination. I won't make final decisions until tomorrow -- and I won't be surprised if I have some last minute additions as I comb through my lists, other people's lists, my notes....

I'm also still working on other categories, but this is what I have for now.

Short stories (alphabetical by author):

"When It Ends, He Catches Her" by Eugie Foster

"Alan Bean Plus Four" by Tom Hanks

"Observations About Eggs from the Man Sitting Next to Me on a Flight from Chicago, Illinois to Cedar Rapids, Iowa" by Carmen Maria Machado

"Jackalope Wives" by Ursula Vernon

Novel (alphabetical by author):

(Alternatively, I may nominate the entire Magicians trilogy as a whole. I know it's eligible to be nominated that way, but I'm checking on the ramifications of it possibly being nominated both ways. I don't want it to cancel itself out.)

Dramatic Presentation - Long Form:

Edge of Tomorrow, directed by Doug Limon

Best Related Work:

So much spec fic, so little time....
