Hugo nominations announced

Here they are, the 2008 Hugo nominations. If you're attending Denvention, you get to vote. If not, like me, you get to root behind the scenes for your favorites. Those would be:

1) Michael Swanwick, nominated for "A Small Room in Koboldtown," which appeared in the Asimov's April/May 2007 issue and in our Swanwick collection, The Dog Said Bow-Wow. Given Michael's track record, he's got a very good shot at yet another Hugo (is that five? Six?). I wonder where he puts those funny statuettes.

2) Sheila Williams, nominated as Best Professional Editor. Given that, in 2007, in addition to her quality work at Asimov's, she also edited our Asimov's SF 30th Anniversary Anthology. Sheila obviously deserves this win.

3) Nancy Kress, nominated for "Fountains of Age." I admit that Tachyon had nothing to do with this novella, but we are publishing Nancy's biological thriller, Dogs, in July.

Congratulations to all of the nominees; I am perhaps biased, but I try to give talented authors and editors their due, especially since they are about to be crushed by our guys. Er, I mean...
