92 thoughts on “Best Editor Long Form and Short Form Hugo: Eligible Works from 2018

  1. Thanks for that detective work, Mark-kitteh!

    Here’s how it shakes out:

    Parisien and Lu are eligible for Editor Short Form, each of them having edited 4+ magazine issues or anthologies.

    Only the short fiction edited by Lu is eligible for the fiction categories; the poetry is not.

    Near as I can tell, this is a first magazine issue/anthology for Sjunneson-Henry, Barischoff, and Tarr, and they are not eligible for Editor Short Form.

  2. Some more acknowledgements gleanings:

    Zachary Wagman edited Blackfish City by Sam J. Miller (Ecco Books).
    Krista Marino edited Skyward by Brandon Sanderson (Delacorte Press).
    David Pomerico and Natasha Bardon edited The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang (Harper Voyager).

  3. @Laura

    Thank you, definitely one for my shortlist. I believe she also edits GRRM so will have a credit for Fire and Blood that takes her up to the 4 book minimum, although I couldn’t find anything in my copy to absolutely confirm that.

  4. Thanks for that, Laura and Mark.

    I’m pretty sure that Melinda Snodgrass is the editor of GRRM’s Wild Cards novels. She co-created the universe with him 30+ years ago, and she’s the co-editor of all the other novels and anthologies. Tor keeps “forgetting” to include her name on the cover of the books, which I think is pretty heinous. 😐

  5. Thank you so much for linking those, Laura, they’re a huge help. Formatting those lists to put into the post took only a matter of minutes. 🙂

    Hopefully the other venues will follow suit.

  6. Thanks, Mark!

    Nice to see he’s listed the Campbell eligible authors as well (as far as he’s aware).

  7. Thanks for the links, all. I’m dealing with a temporary disability right now which makes doing large amounts of typing painful, so it will take a little while for me to get all of these added.

  8. @JJ: I hope the healing process improves and speeds up (for your sake, of course, not ours).

    Also, I realized you didn’t ask for Uncanny, so you may not have needed that one. Sorry if it was redundant. I keep forgetting I only get about 1 in 5-10 updates from WordPress on this thread (one of the few I stayed subscribed to, since most still send me NO updates). So any update makes me think I’m updated on the whole thread, when really I’ve missed most of the comments. (sigh)

  9. .A couple more from acknowledgements:

    Mike Braff edited Iron Gold by Pierce Brown (Del Rey).
    Joe Monti edited Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse (Saga Press).

  10. Current Status:

    Short Fiction venues for which works have been included:

    Amazing Stories
    Analog Science Fiction & Fact
    Anathema Magazine
    Apex Magazine
    Apparition Lit
    Asimov’s Science Fiction
    Beneath Ceaseless Skies
    Book Smugglers
    Broadswords and Blasters
    Cast of Wonders
    Clarkesworld Magazine
    Diabolical Plots
    Escape Pod
    Fireside Magazine
    Fiyah Magazine of Black Speculative Fiction
    The Gallery of Curiosities
    GigaNotoSaurus
    Lightspeed Magazine
    The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction
    NewCon Press
    Nightmare Magazine
    PodCastle
    Pseudopod
    Shimmer Magazine
    Shoreline of Infinity
    Strange Horizons
    Subterranean Press
    Tor.com
    Uncanny Magazine

     
    If anyone knows someone at Metaphorosis Magazine, please let them know that their fiction has not been included because their eligibility post is so incredibly user-un-friendly and difficult for me to pull into a useful list.

     
    Short Fiction venues for which I do not have a eligibility post, and have not yet included:

    Interzone
    Pulphouse Magazine

    (If all of you would be kind enough to keep an eye out and let me know if any of the preceding venues post a list of their award-eligible original fiction from 2018 — or that of any other eligible short fiction venue which is not listed in this comment, I would be most appreciative, because otherwise it’s a huge job of clicking, copying, and pasting to format their lists for this post.)

  11. Mark: Helpful thread for British editors. I need to go through and see if it helps add any names to the list.

    Unfortunately, it contains no specifics, just names of authors whom editors have worked with in the past. He mentions Jim Butcher for Jenni Hill, but Anne Sowards edited Brief Cases. He mentions Marc Gascoigne for Aliette de Bodard, but Tea Master was edited by Schafer/Kuznia at Subterranean, and Vanishers was edited by Joshua A. Bilmes. He mentions Tor’s Bella Pagan for Adrian Tchaikovsky but Redemption’s Blade was published by Solaris and The Expert System’s Brother was edited by Harris.

    I really hate it when people recommend Editors based on their careers instead of specific works for the award year, it’s not at all helpful. At least GRRM actually tied specific works to editors’ names in his recommendations this year.

  12. Laura: Beneath Ceaseless Skies

    Finally! I’ve been checking for theirs every couple of days! Thank you!

  13. It could possibly be Anne Sowards for Jim Butcher’s Ace US edition and Jenni Hill for the Orbit UK edition — but I don’t think the rest you mention have a different UK publisher so probably referring to non-2018 work. And anyway he’s obviously not thinking of Butcher’s 2018 material (a collection of short fiction) when he’s recommending Jenni Hill for long form. ::sigh::

  14. And now another editor has chimed in, encouraging people to nominate the editors of the Broken Earth books, which ended in 2017. 😐

    Come on people, help us out here, and give us actual 2018 credits!

  15. JJ: Saw what you’re talking about. How do we keep missing on someone who’s made the shortlist for the last two years? I’ve nominated both of them in the past, but not this year unless four 2018 works turn up for them (and I like at least one of those works enough to be looking at it for best novel).

  16. Laura: How do we “keep missing” on someone who’s made the shortlist for the last two years?

    Yeah, I was not best pleased by that accusation (especially as that person made the shortlist last year on a rather sparse body of work). It’s as if they have no idea who’s actually been on the ballot for Best Editor, but feel compelled to comment anyway. 😐

  17. Yes, that’s exactly why I decided to never just nominate the editors of my best novel nominees again — unless I know they have at least 3 other works. So far I got one! Thanks again to this list for helping me do that!

  18. Laura: Yes, that’s exactly why I decided to never just nominate the editors of my best novel nominees again — unless I know they have at least 3 other works.

    You know, you can always try e-mailing or tweeting the editors of your favorites to ask what else they’ve done — they may not answer, but then again, you might be surprised! 🙂

  19. Mark: Oh well, I guess I should have looked at the thread in more detail before posting it.

    No, I’m glad you posted it, and I hope you’ll do so again, because sometimes I can figure out book editors by Googling an editor’s name and the book title, if I have a likely suspect.

  20. JJ: Where do editors of novellas fit in? I’m asking because Lee Harris is the Senior Editor at Tor.com’s novella program, which I think has been putting out excellent work in the past few years and I’d like to recognize that work somehow, but novellas don’t seem to fit in either category.

    Should he be nominated in short form because he’s on the staff of Tor.com, even though the novellas aren’t always published on the site?

  21. Lorien Gray: Where do editors of novellas fit in? I’m asking because Lee Harris… has been putting out excellent work

    Novellas are considered Short Form work (the Editor Long Form definition specifies novel-length works). Harris was in fact a Finalist for Editor Short Form last year, and his 2018 credits are listed on that page.

    I imagine that a Hugo Admin would think something like “okay, editing 3 novellas would be equal to editing a collection or anthology” — and Harris certainly has way more than 4 of those equivalents to his credit.

  22. JJ: You know, you can always try e-mailing or tweeting the editors of your favorites to ask what else they’ve done — they may not answer, but then again, you might be surprised!

    True. Not only good for possibly nominating them, but for adding to Mt. Tsundoku! 🙂

  23. Thanks, JJ. Despite looking for him there, I managed to miss him. Is there a chagrined emoji?
