    Once again it is time to catalog the various accolades earned by F&SF stories from 2019.

    We don't have any Year's Best tables of contents yet, so first up is the Locus Recommended Reading List, which has just been released, and which features seven stories from F&SF, published in the course of 2019:

    “New Atlantis”, Lavie Tidhar (F&SF May/Jun 2019)

    “A Strange Uncertain Light”, G.V. Anderson (F&SF Jul/Aug 2019)

    “Erase, Erase, Erase”, Elizabeth Bear (F&SF Sep/Oct 2019)

    “Contagion’s Eve at the House Noctambulous”, Rich Larson (F&SF Mar/Apr 2019)

    “Mighty Are the Meek and the Myriad”, Cassandra Khaw (F&SF Jul/Aug 2019)

    “Under the Hill”, Maureen McHugh (F&SF Sep/Oct 2019)

    “Shucked”, Sam J. Miller (F&SF Nov/Dec 2019)

    Congratulations to the authors, editor Charlie, and publisher Gordon!

    The 2020 Hugo Award winners were announced on Saturday morning (New Zealand time). We are now firmly into the era where it is very difficult for the digest magazines to place stories on the final ballots of the major awards.

    Nonetheless, I was pleased to spot three stories from F&SF in the "long lists" made available after the award ceremony. These are the works that missed the final ballot, but nevertheless received enough nominations to place them among the top sixteen (approximately) stories in their category.

    The stories from F&SF are:

    “A Strange Uncertain Light”, by G. V. Anderson (F&SF, July/August 2019) placed 8th in the number of nominations in the novelette category (the top 6 were finalists). The lowest-placed finalist received 41 nominations; Anderson received 31.

    “Erase, Erase, Erase”, by Elizabeth Bear (F&SF, September/October 2019) placed 14th, also in the novelette category, with 23 nominations.

    “Shucked”, by Sam J. Miller (F&SF, November/December 2019) placed 15th in the number of nominations in the short story category (the top 6 were finalists). The lowest-placed finalist received 31 nominations; Miller received 15.

    It is an honor to make the long list, even if you're not a finalist!

    (Please note that I didn't research the provenance of every story on the various long lists. It is possible that I may have missed one or more other stories from F&SF. Please point them out, if so! The voting details for the Hugos can be found here:
