F&SF’s Hugo Nominees Now Online

Late last week, I posted about F&SF’s stories that have made this year’s Hugo ballot. Three out of four were already on our website because they’re also Nebula nominees. Now the fourth–"Finisterra" by David Moles–is available as well. Here’s a handy list with links:

Novella: "Stars Seen Through Stone" by Lucius Shepard (July 2007), "Memorare" by Gene Wolfe (April 2007)

Novelette: "The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate" by Ted Chiang (Sept. 2007); "Finisterra" by David Moles (Dec. 2007)

2008 Hugo Award Finalists

The 2008 Hugo Award finalists have been announced, and I’m pleased to report that F&SF editor Gordon Van Gelder is once again a nominee in the best professional editor (short form) category, and that several F&SF stories made the cut.

Novella: "Stars Seen Through Stone" by Lucius Shepard (July 2007), "Memorare" by Gene Wolfe (April 2007)

Novelette: "The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate" by Ted Chiang (Sept. 2007); "Finisterra" by David Moles (Dec. 2007)

Congrats to these authors, and to the rest of the nominees!
