121 thoughts on “2023 Hugo Finalists

  1. Congratulations to all the finalists. I believe I might be the first photographer to be nominated for a Best Fan Artist award. Thank you.

    Voters Packet: I was told that it will be available later.

    re: Chinese nominees
    As you might know, nominations are open to members of Chicon8 and Chengdu Worldcon. The quality of the Chinese SF is quite high, but most work is available in Chinese language only, so the reach is limited.

    To vote in the Hugos in the Chengdu Worldcon, you only need to purchase a “WSFS membership” for $50, and if you want to attend virtually, it’s only an additional $10. In person membership is also quite low at $30-$70. The convention center is not finished yet, but the Chinese has a history of able to complete facilities on time.

    China is a beautiful country and the Chinese fan are quite genuine. As a Hong Kong Chinese, I grew up reading “Wuxia” novels and watching Japanese anime that are quite relatable to the fantasy sword and sorcery and science fantasy genres, and I am very glad that all of us will be exposed to a little bit of the Chinese culture.

  2. @richard Congrats on your Hugo Nomination. Are you going to China, perhaps to continue your Worldbuilders project?

  3. Thanks Paul. I will probably be attending virtually. I would love to go to Chengdu, especially to continue my project, but I have personal reasons not to attend. Feel free to contact me if you want an explanation.

  4. @Richard Mann: Congratulation to you for your nomination.
    The problem with work only avoible in Chinese is how does a person who doesn’t speak Chinese reconise it and now votes for it? Another problem is that the time stuff is translated it is old news for the fans it originated from.
    Re membership: For me the problem is transfering money to China. I tried to become a suporting member of this worldcon at the beginning of the year but failed. I nominated and some stuff I did is on the final ballot.
    Many people are skeptical at the moment for travelling to China, more than pre-Covid. I hope that you and all people who are travelling there have a great Con.

  5. As part of the data-gathering exercise: I have not received any Hugo announcement-related emails. I have in the past received some (but far from all) emails from the Chengdu committee. If I understand the system correctly, I should have a WSFS (supporting) membership by virtue of having voted in site selection, as well as getting emails due to having been a ChiCon member.

    I thought there were previous announcements that all supporting memberships did not need upgrade fees to be attending. But since I’m not getting the announcement emails, that may have changed without my knowing. (I’m not going to attend, but I do want to make sure I have voting rights.)

  6. Re Heather Rose Jones:

    I received an email with an introduction in Chinese, and a list of the works and categories in both languages. Dated 9:23 this morning.

    Re membership: everyone who voted in site selection is an attending member.

  7. I haven’t gotten any mail from the Chengdu worldcon since May. I am eligible to vote in the Hugos. I just don’t have any info from them.

  8. I read someone on Twitter calling for news outlets to run a bilingual list of Hugo finalists. I have added one to the end of the original post.

    When I checked the Chengdu Worldcon English language website at 6 a.m. Pacific this morning there was an English-only list posted, which I copied verbatim here.

    Sometime later on they replaced it with the bilingual version which now appears in this post.

    I don’t want people to think I cut the Chinese part out of the original — as anyone knows who saw the post I made of the (withdrawn) list the other day, I am quite willing to run the notifications in both languages.

    One more item for the record, I was not sent a press release. I don’t know if anyone was. There are emails being sent to members. With any luck I may eventually receive a copy.

  9. @ Heather Rose Jones I believe I’m receiving the Chengdu Worldcon emails on the strength of having voted in the site selection and therefore qualifying as a Supporting member.

  10. There is a chance in best related Buffalito World Outreach Project is there instead of the Art of Ghost of Tsushima.
    “The White Cliff”, by Lu Ban is new in short story.
    She Hulk is new in Dramatic short and Black Panther is long.
    This seemed to be the only chances from the false list (only counting now finalists not creators named as part of the teams.

    Quoting myself, there is a blog, where you can still see the redacted list. (Camestros blog)

  11. Not after the filter from the older post reapers, the chance in the short story probably was a translationerror in the older ballot.

  14. I don’t know if what I got at 9.23 am my time was a press release or not it was almost all in Chinese. It was titled “2023 Hugo Awards, Astounding Award and Lodestar Award Finalists Announced!” Which kind of suggests it was. Or not.

  15. I received what appears to be the same email Cat did, at 9:22 eastern. I am not a member of this year’s worldcon (but I am a member of last year’s, so I did nominate this year).

  16. Raven Onthill wrote:

    Are there any Chinese nominees? There are certainly very few. Why not more?

    At a rough count, it looks to me like there are about 20 Chinese people and works by Chinese people on the ballot (out of about 115 total finalists, so a bit under 20%). (The numbers depend somewhat on who exactly you mean—are you including people of Chinese descent who were born elsewhere? Are you including people born in Taiwan who now live elsewhere? Etc.)

    The number varies a lot by category. For example, none in Novel, but I think four out of the six in Short Story.

    It appears that this year there were 1,847 valid nominating ballots cast, up from 1,368 last year. So my guess would be that (very roughly) about a quarter of the nominating ballots cast were cast by Chinese fans. (But I’m making a lot of assumptions and guesses here.)

  17. I’m curious about one particular number from the official announcement:

    During the nomination stage, more than 25,000 science fiction works (individuals) were submitted

    At first I thought that meant 25,000 unique works and people, which would be a huge increase over last year. If I’m reading last year’s Hugo-voting-details report correctly, there were a total of about 4,000 unique works and people nominated last year. (See “Nomination statistics” on p. 25; I added up all the numbers in the “Nominees” column.)

    But given that there were 1,847 valid nominating ballots cast this year, 25,000 unique works and people seems really unlikely.

    So it seems more plausible that that 25,000 number might mean the total number of nominating votes cast—that is, the total number of works and people listed on those nominating ballots (without looking at uniqueness). That would mean each nominating ballot had an average of 13.5 items on it.

    But last year’s report seems to suggest that there were about 8,000 total nominating votes cast (the total of the numbers the “Votes” column in that same table), for an average of about 6 items on each nominating ballot.

    So does the 25,000 number mean that the average number of items listed on each nominating ballot was more than double the number from last year? Or am I still misinterpreting?

  18. As a supporting member of last year’s worldcon, I was getting emails with updates about the process this year and the availability of the website. In May, I requested a login link, and that email reached me. I was able to register and see on the page that my supporting membership was indeed purchased, but I never got a confirmation email of that…or anything since, including today’s announcement. I’ve repeatedly requested login links and have gotten no emails. Seems like I was better off before I registered.

  19. Jed Hartman: About that number. At first I assumed it was a translation error, but then I watched the announcement video where Hugo Administrator Dave McCarty literally says that is the number of works. And if somebody ought to know the right number, it’s him.

  20. I hear reports from Chinese-speakers — and this seems to be confirmed by Google Translate — that something has gone very wrong in the Chinese translation for FIYAH’s nomination.

    The translation seems to have ignored the name “FIYAH” entirely, and then translated their subtitle — “The Magazine of Black Speculative Fiction” — as something like “Science Fiction of Shadowy Darkness”.

    I hope the administrators can correct this soon.

  21. @Jon Lennox
    Its’ true that they missed transliterating the name FIYAH. However, “Shadowy Dark” is a bit of stretch. Yes, those two words can be translated as “shadowy dark”, but it could just mean “dark” or “Black”. This is certainly one tough one.

  23. As part of the data process, we’ve gotten a few e-mails over the last few days from “chinese characters” [email protected] on the subject
    4:45 PM
    ???????????????????????????????

    We have no idea if this is from the committee or not. Apparently e-mails from Chengdu do not come through for us unless its in answer to a direct inquiry.

  24. As a member of Chicon, I did get the info on nominating, and so I did. That was it, however.

    I probably had to fish it out of the Spam folder, though — it tends to catch everything in non-Roman characters. Today the 6:24 AM Pacific bilingual Hugo finalist list ended up there, along with Cyrillic spam.

    I am surprised and charmed by buffalitos being finalists.

    And congrats to Richard, who’s a FOAF and does wonderful work. And to all the others.

    TIL what the O in O. Wilson stands for.

  25. Can anybody find “The Space-Time Painter” by Hai Ya (Galaxy’s Edge, April 2022)? Cause I was just looking up the story and Galaxy’s Edge did not have an April 2022 issue, just March and May, and I can’t find that story in the TOC.

  26. Does anyone know for what/for who Huan Yan or Xu Wang are editors? Trying to track them down for the Wikipedia article on the editor awards, and neither seem to have an easy internet presence to find. Xu Wang, for one, has the misfortune of having the same name as an editor for Architectural Digest China as well an editor for academic journals, but Huan Yan is turning up nothing in English or Chinese.

  27. Fun lil’ statistic: Severance joins a small club of shows that have had their debut seasons nominated for Long Form since 2003 (not counting The Twilight Zone‘s nominations/wins in the category’s early days.)

    So that’s: Heroes, Game of Thrones (won), Stranger Things, Good Omens (edge case, I very much remember it being classified as a miniseries when it was nominated/won), Russian Doll, Severance. Pretty solid company, I’d say.

    No second, third etc. seasons have been nominated yet.

  28. Cora Buhlert, I searched, “Galaxy’s Edge, April 2022” is not our Galaxy’s Edge Magazine. That’s a Chinese sci-fi anthology “????009”. It seems to be a coincidence.

    Oh no Chinese characters can’t display correctly here. I’ll paste their Chinese page
    https://www.chengduworldcon.com/Xnews/235.html

  29. Cora, ISFDB doesn’t have a listing for a “The Space-Time Painter” or a Hai Ya. And I checked all of our Galaxy’s Dgevfir that year as well. I’m assuming this is a Chinese language publication of the same name.

  30. Yes, I suspect it might be a Chinese magazine of the same name. Galaxy’s Edge is a fairly common name, which is not just an American SF magazine, but also a military SF series and a Disney World attraction.

  31. @Cat Eldridge:

    ISFDB doesn’t have a listing for a “The Space-Time Painter” or a Hai Ya.

    I added them several days ago, based on the leaked list, before the official announcement:

    https://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/title.cgi?3204409

    Searching on the English language title won’t find any results, because it hasn’t (yet) been published under that title. Similar for author searches on Hai Ya, although it looks like someone has since made a variant entry so that searches will work:

    https://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/se.cgi?arg=hai+ya&type=Name

    There are also barebones entries for the magazine, although again it will only show in searches for the Chinese title:

    https://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/pe.cgi?70328

  32. @Jed Hartman:

    It appears that this year there were 1,847 valid nominating ballots cast, up from 1,368 last year. So my guess would be that (very roughly) about a quarter of the nominating ballots cast were cast by Chinese fans. (But I’m making a lot of assumptions and guesses here.)

    My own guess, looking at the categories in which we have Chinese-language finalists, would be that the proportion of nominating ballots cast by Chinese fans was probably closer to 10%, but that those were serious enough about it to nominate across all (or at least most) categories.With EPH, that would be quite enough to get them a couple of nominations in categories where only about 30% of Western fans habitually nominate (the Editor categories, for instance) – or where nomination rates are usually rather higher, but the nominations tend to be so fragmented that even the most popular nominees only appear on a minority of nomination forms (Short Story, for instance). But in, say, Novel, this would only get them some fairly low places on the longlist.

  33. Curious question from a Swede: Örjan Westin (nominated for Best Fan Writer) is a very Swedish name, but no Swedish, Finnish, or otherwise Nordic fan of that name comes to mind. Does anyone have any clue who he might be?

  34. Karl-Johan Norén, Örjan Westin = Micro SF/F stories (@MicroSFF) on Twitter, maybe

  35. “Curious question from a Swede: Örjan Westin (nominated for Best Fan Writer) is a very Swedish name, but no Swedish, Finnish, or otherwise Nordic fan of that name comes to mind. Does anyone have any clue who he might be?”

    It’s the guy having the brilliant twitter feed for the Micro Science Fiction, right? No idea where he’s from.

  36. There is a chance [change?] in best related Buffalito World Outreach Project is there instead of the Art of Ghost of Tsushima.

    As described on Wikipedia, the Ghost of Tsushima game is about “a samurai on a quest to protect Tsushima Island during the first Mongol invasion of Japan.” I could see a Chinese censor objecting to that being on the list. Without more to go on, though, it’s just speculation.

  37. I added stub entries for them (and all the other Chinese finalists) to ISFDB

    @John S / ErsatzCulture Thank you so much!

  38. On a related topic… has anyone heard anything about Site Selection Voting yet?

  39. @N

    Babel’s exclusion from here is interesting to me. Is it possible Kuang denied a nomination? Though unless she outright says she did, we’ll never know.

    The longlist will let us know if she did.

  40. @N

    While we’re on the subject of snubs, I’m a little shocked by House of the Dragon not being represented here (but She-Hulk is?), given how much praise it’s gotten.

    …A little, I mean. I wonder if fans in the Worldcon neck of the woods just got tired of the HBO drama trappings coupled with the franchise’s sense of bleakness and wariness after how GOT ended. I can see people here thinking HOTD wasn’t all that.

    Some WSFS members being over GRRM may have played a part too.

    (I nominated an episode of HoTD myself. I liked it way more than I expected too.)
