Hugo Awards Nomination Period Opens Jan. 1 + Free Stuff for Worldcon Members

This year’s Hugo Awards nomination period opens January 1.

The 2012 Hugo Awards will be presented in San Antonio, TX during Lone Star Con 3, the 71st World Science Fiction Convention (Aug. 29-Sep. 2). Nominations close on March 10, 2012. Anyone who has a supporting or full membership of Lone Star Con 3 as of January 31, 2013 and all members of Chicon 7 (last year’s Worldcon) may nominate works. If you didn’t attend Chicon 7, and you don’t plan to attend Lone Star Con 3, you can still nominate by purchasing a supporting membership. Nominations may be submitted through the online ballot, available here.

To assist you in finding material to nominate, I’ve assembled this post to list everything that I worked on in 2012.

  • All of Lightspeed‘s original fiction from 2012 is available online (and also much of the 2012 original fiction is available as a podcast).
  • All of Nightmare‘s original fiction from 2012 is available online (and also much of the 2012 original fiction is available as a podcast).
  • Selected stories from Armored are available online.
  • Selected stories from Under the Moons of Mars are available online.

If you are planning and eligible to vote for the Hugos this year, if you email me proof of your Worldcon membership (i.e., your name is listed on the Worldcon website as an attending member, or the email confirmation or receipt you received when you purchased your membership, etc.) I would be happy to make all of my 2012 content available to you in the digital format of your choice (doc, pdf, mobi, or epub).

After the jump, you’ll find all of the 2012 eligible stories/authors that either appeared in Lightspeed or Nightmare, or in projects I’m otherwise affiliated with.

__________

Edited to Add:

* Nightmare is not actually eligible for semiprozine this year because it only published three issues; the award eligibility rules require that a publication has published at least four issues (and Nightmare only published three by the end of the eligibility year). It will theoretically be eligible next year, unless rules or circumstances change.
