Hugo Award Nominations!

I was nominated for two Hugo Awards!

BEST RELATED WORK 
Queers Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the LGBTQ Fans Who Love It Edited by Sigrid Ellis & Michael Damian Thomas (Mad Norwegian Press)

BEST SEMIPROZINE 
Apex Magazine edited by Lynne M. Thomas, Jason Sizemore, and Michael Damian Thomas

Lynne is also nominated for:

BEST FANCAST
Verity! Deborah Stanish, Erika Ensign, Katrina Griffiths, L.M. Myles, Lynne M. Thomas, and Tansy Rayner Roberts

Finally, Rachel Swirsky’s Apex Magazine story “If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love” was nominated for the Best Short Story Hugo Award and Nebula Award! This is the first time a story that I co-edited has been nominated for a major award. I am SO HAPPY for Rachel!

I’m absolutely honored and overwhelmed.

We are extremely proud of QDTL & our run at Apex Magazine. We worked with phenomenal people. We couldn’t have done it without such amazing contributors and co-editors. 

Lynne and I were finally at a live Hugo Awards announcement at Minicon. It was fun hearing it with our friends. We were also able to celebrate with a nice dinner  that became wonderfully raucous.

It’s been a rough year, so this really means a lot to us. Now all we have to do is figure out how to be in London for the ceremony. 🙂
