  1. Ok, I’m really dumb; I thought that Ursula’s ‘Jackelope Wives’ was already there.

    I’m really, really glad that the story is there now; for me it was an extraordinary tour de force of a remarkable creative mind. The more people who read it the better…

    Edited to add an additional R

  2. So I was at an after party being run by the Dorsai Irregulars who work security at this con, and a dear friend had to call and explain it three times, through the pleasant drunken haze I had sunk into. One of the things she said was that it was confirmed on File770, so thank you, Mike, because I believed it at last after I double checked here myself.

    Um. Whoa. Did not see that coming.

  3. Congrats to Ursula!

    It looks like they now have 6 novella noms. I can’t find an explanation on their site, so I’m going to take a wild guess that “The Devil in America” was misattributed as a short for whatever reason, and once they realised they decided the fair thing to do was to increase the Novella category, and bring in a new short.

  4. John Joseph Adams’ editing credits have been amended to include Fantasy and remove Lightspeed.

    It was the other way around–removed Fantasy and included Lightspeed. (Fantasy was folded into Lightspeed when he bought them both from Prime in 2011.)

  5. @redwombat Congratulations! 😀 (It’s so weird that they don’t notify the nominees.)
