The Hugo Award shortlists were announced this morning. There are some excellent works on the ballot, a number of which I nominated myself, but of particular excitement is the Fancast category (a provisional category this year – long may she prosper!), where my friends Alex, Alisa and Tansy (and producer Finchy!) are recognised with their feminist SF podcast, Galactic Suburbia! Well done to the GS team! Also featuring in this category is the Coode Street podcast with West Aussie Jonathan Strahan (who is also recognised in Best Professional Editor Short Form) – yay for the Aussies!
So many other great works on the ballot that I won’t try to applaud them all, other than to say congratulations everyone!
