With One Day to Spare: Hugo Nominations Are In

If you’re a member of Renovation, this year’s World Science Fiction Convention, or were a member of last year’s AussieCon, and you haven’t submitted your nominations for the 2011 Hugo Awards, you don’t have much time left! The last day to nominate anything is tomorrow.

I submitted my nominations this afternoon. I probably should’ve been reading slush, but that’s the way it goes.

With respect to the nomination process, I’ve decided I need to develop a system whereby I mark and set aside good stories throughout the year, instead of going through the stack of last year’s magazines (on paper and online) and books and trying to remember which ones I really liked.

With respect to the nominations themselves: just in case any of my family and friends thought I might give in to the temptation, I did not nominate myself for a Hugo, nor did I nominate myself for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.

Finally, on a related note: Mary Robinette Kowal, winner of the 2008 Campbell Award and the current Vice President of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, mentioned me in her blog entry this past Tuesday: Campbell Award Eligible Writers You Should Pay Attention To. Thanks, Mary!
