ICYMI: Hugo Award Nominations!

Hey, in case you missed it this weekend … I was nominated for two Hugo Awards!

 

BEST FANCAST
Verity! Deborah Stanish, Erika Ensign, Katrina Griffiths, L.M. Myles, Lynne M. Thomas, and Tansy Rayner Roberts

 

BEST SEMIPROZINE

Apex Magazine edited by Lynne M. Thomas, Jason Sizemore, and Michael Damian Thomas

Michael is also nominated for:

BEST RELATED WORK 
Queers Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the LGBTQ Fans Who Love It Edited by Sigrid Ellis & Michael Damian Thomas (Mad Norwegian Press)

Finally, Rachel Swirsky’s Apex Magazine story “If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love” was nominated for the Best Short Story Hugo Award and Nebula Award! This is the first time a story that we co-edited has been nominated for a major award. We are THRILLED for Rachel!

I’m so very proud of our run at Apex Magazine. We worked with phenomenal people. We couldn’t have done it without such amazing contributors and co-editors. I’m also thrilled to have the fun and work of Verity! recognized. *fistbump for my Verity! peeps*

Michael and I attended a live Hugo Awards announcement at Minicon. It was fun hearing it with our friends. We were also able to celebrate with a nice dinner  that became rather raucous.

It’s been a rough year, so this really means a lot to us. Now all we have to do is figure out how to be in London for the ceremony. 🙂
