HUGO HUGO HUGO (and best fan writer)

So I’ve just submitted my nominations for the Hugo Awards. I know I can update them over the next few days, but unless something suddenly pops into my head, it’s unlikely I’ll be adding anything.

A few days back I mentioned the comics I’d be nominating, so I thought I’d inspire you with the fan writers I’ve put on my list. They are:

Abigail Nussbaum

Grant Watson


Martin Lewis

Liz Bourke (I’ve linked to her review of Theft of Swords because it’s a great example of how an excellent review can generate discussion – even if most of it is heated. But Liz has written many fine reviews).

I’ve spoken in the past about how much I enjoy these writers so it should be no surprise that I’m nominating them. But it’s worth noting that none of my potential nominees have ever appeared on a Hugo list and it’s time we saw some variety, some fresh voices on the ballot.

    acrackedmoon is shithouse, as is Nussbaum from what little I’ve read, but I’ll barrack for Grant to get a guernsey.

      You’re wrong on both acrackedmoon and Nussbaum. But we’ve already had his discussion. You might like Martin Lewis and Liz.
