Hugo Eligibility Post
It’s nomination time for the 2015 Hugo Awards, given out this August at Sasquan, the World Science Fiction convention in Spokane, WA, and I thought I would make a list of the things I’m eligible for. Cause if I don’t tell you, you might not know.
Nominations close on March 10, 2015.
If you were a voting member of the 2014, 2015, or 2016 Worldcons you’re eligible to nominate (You have to get your 2015 membership before Jan 31 this year.)
And hey, if you don’t plan on going, you can still support the con, vote in the Hugos, and get lots of awesome ebooks for a supporting membership of $40. All the information regarding getting a membership and nominating for the Hugos can be found here.
I Should Be Writing — I’ve been doing this show for 9.5 years. I’m fairly sure it’s the longest running writing show in podcasting. I’ve featured authors such as NK Jemisin, Lev Grossman, Lauren Beukes, Neil Gaiman, Connie Willis, China Mieville, Seanan McGuire, and lots more. It a love letter to SF from the struggling writer’s POV.
