Hugo news

So, this evening the 2014 Hugo shortlists were announced, and it appears I have been nominated for a Hugo in the Best Editor (Long Form) category. This is astonishing news, and I am thrilled, humbled and embarrassed in equal measure. Someone mentioned to me that this is the first time in the history of the Hugo Awards that a Brit has been shortlisted in a Best Editor category (can someone check that for me?), which, if true, makes this an even more amazing experience.

The other editors shortlisted are all incredible people, and I don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning, but I get to go to the Hugo party this year without having to blag myself an invitation as a Plus One! And I get to own a Hugo pin!

Anyway, enough blogging for now – I have to get back to my champers. Someone fetch me a new bottle, will you? I am – of course – far too important now, to do it myself.
