For those of you looking to nominate work for the Hugo Award or nominate for the World Fantasy Award or nominate for the Nebula Award, here is a summary of Electric Velocipede‘s final year of publication and our eligibility.
The magazine itself is eligible for the Best Semiprozine Hugo Award. Our editor John Klima is eligible for the Best Editor Short Form Hugo Award and the World Fantasy Award Nonprofessional. Cover artist Thom Davidsohn is eligible for the Best Fan Artist Hugo Award (link to artwork below).
The short fiction distinctions are for Nebula and Hugo Awards only. All the stories published in Electric Velocipede last year fall under the Short Story category for the World Fantasy Award.
All of the poetry from last year is eligible for the Rhysling Award. We’ve published a lot of great poetry over the years and would love to see some of our amazing authors get recognized.
