  1. I hadn’t realised you could nominate YouTube series, in which case I would have nominated the excellent Girl Next Gondor.

  2. @Anna Feruglio Dal Dan

    I began considering YouTube/Rumble/etc. presentations during one of the Puppy years. I enjoyed the nominated Rageoholic’s channel. Not enough to subscribe or otherwise return to the channel, but the episodes I viewed were pretty good. I don’t recall nominating anything in that category that year. But my noms rarely make the long list, much less the short list.

    The rules for the fancast category explicitly include video and audio presentations.

    You can take everything a man has as long as you leave him his dignity. – John Wayne

  3. Novel:
    Translation State, Ann Leckie
    Julia, Sandra Newman
    Emergent Properties, Aimee Ogden
    The Long Game, Ann Leckie
    Short Story:
    The Spoil Heap, Fiona Moore
    The Job at the End of the World, Ray Nayler
    Jamais Vue, Tochi Onyebuchi
    To Carry You Inside You, Tia Tashiro

    I would have nominated more things in the first three categories, but I, too, messed up the time zone conversion and didn’t get them in on time on Saturday.

  4. I finally got my Hugo nomination e-mail confirmation – they had to resend it manually – so here are mine:
