Chicon 7’s press release announcing the opening of Hugo Award nominations touted the Hugos as “the premier award in the science fiction genre.”
Tor.com’s post based on the same press release downchecked the Hugos to “one of the most prestigious awards for science fiction and fantasy works.”
The same Tor.com post alerts SFWA members that Nebula Award nomination are being taken and reminds everyone that several stories run by Tor.com are eligible for both awards.
I cannot deny that a writer trying to nudge voters into supporting the home team must avoid the mistake of antagonizing SFWAns by treating the Hugos as pre-eminent.
Even if they are. 😉
