So a few people I know are on the Hugo final ballot.
Daniel Abraham is up for best novelette, for his story The Cambist and Lord Iron: A Fairytale of Economics. It's a wonderful story that was in the anthology, Logorrhea. I first heard him read it at Bubonicon two years ago.
Ellen Datlow, who was one of my Clarion West instructors, is up for Best Professional Editor, Short Form.
Connie Willis, another of my Clarion West instructors, is up for Best Novella for All Seated on the Ground.
And in that same category is Kristine Kathryn Rusch, for Recovering Apollo 8. Kris and I are on a common listserv.
Patrick Nielsen-Hayden, who was one of my Viable Paradise instructors, and is my friend Ian Tregillis's editor, is up for Best Professional Editor, Long Form.
Way to go, guys! The whole ballot can be seen here.
