  1. I’ve pulled out all the stops this year and built a very complex algorithmic mathematical model* for the Neffies to predict the results and the model strongly suggest, with a high probability, that Toni Weisskopf will win best book editor. It’s only a model projection so don’t get too carried away with the possibility.

    *[Based on 2015-2019 data. Data for the ‘Best Editor’ category has been amalgamated into the the ‘Best Book Editor’ category]

  2. Is Tony Weisskopf the only nominee for Best Editor? If so, you don’t need a model to know that she’ll win. Wasn’t she the Puppy fav for this back in ‘15?

  3. I wouldn’t be surprised if George Phillies is thinking about Nic Farey’s dissection of the FAAn Awards results. George does follow what’s happening with fanzines.

  4. Nice to see that they have a Shorter Work category these days, and that the print magazines get some love.

  5. Glad to see L.E. Modesitt, Jr. and Chris Nuttall getting some attention.
