yay! Amazing Stories has won an award,
A very nice addition to this year’s accomplishments.
Thanks to all who voted.
Thanks for the coverage of our awards, and your other positive work covering stfnal news. I was more than a bit surprised first to be nominated and then to win for Best Novel. Fortunately, the N3F has been offering Awards in some form, on and off, since 1942, so there was a precedent on how to handle the matter.
The awards have got a lot more coverage this year, which is good news for them.
From what I’ve seen elsewhere there are three approaches:
1. all officials are ineligible
2. only those officials who directly administer the awards are ineligible
3. everybody is eligible
I think 3. can only work if the awards are seen as sufficiently low stakes for everybody, otherwise, you can get dramas from people who lost.
