Hugo Nomination Kudos

Kudos and congrats are due to some friends who have gotten onto the final ballot for the Hugos this year:

John Picacio's 'Cover Story'John Picacio, nominated for both the Professional Artist category and the Related Book category (for Cover Story, his collection of book covers). Not only is John a phenomenal, groundbreaking artist, but he’s an extremely nice guy too, which isn’t a bad combination.

Lou Anders, my esteemed editor at Pyr, has received a well-deserved nomination for Best Editor, Long Form. Putting aside the fact that I wouldn’t have my book in the stores if not for Lou, he’s helped put some major talents into the limelight these past few years, where they should have been all along: Ian McDonald, Justina Robson, and Joel Shepherd, to name a few.

Ian McDonald, author of River of Gods and the forthcoming Brasyl (which Publishers Weekly recently gave a starred review), has gotten a nomination for Best Novelette for his Asimov’s story “The Djinn’s Wife.”

John Scalzi has been nominated for Best Fan Writer, which would be a nice stopgap for him between his Campbell Award win last year and his expected Dramatic Presentation, Short Form award next year for his poignant promotional videos featuring his books talking to one another.

Chris Roberson, whose MonkeyBrain Books published John Picacio’s Cover Story.

Congrats to all.
