The 2008 Locus Award finalists have been announced, and we’d like to congratulate Gene Wolfe and Ted Chiang, whose stories from F&SF “Memorare” and “The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate” are both on the shortlist. EDIT: Congrats to Lucius Shepard too, who is also on the ballot.
We’d also like to congratulate Gordon for being nominated in the best editor category and…ourselves, for being nominated in the best magazine category. Thanks to everyone who voted!
Don’t forget, today’s the last day to vote in the Locus Awards poll.
