My 2010 Hugo and Nebula nominations

I’ve done my nominations for the Hugo and Nebula awards for 2010. There were several good novels and one superbly outstanding one. I didn’t read a whole lot of short fiction from 2010 so some of those categories are blank.  Nominations within each grouping are listed alphabetically by author.

A quick comment on Connie Willis’ Blackout/All Clear. This is a single book that was split into two books by the publisher. This is not a series. There is no synopsis at the beginning of All Clear. All Clear starts exactly where Blackout left off and it is impossible to read that book and make any sense of it without having reading Blackout. I have therefore nominated the entire book, as written, for the Hugo and Nebula. I don’t know if this is allowed. I inquired on this but I haven’t yet gotten a response. It would seem remarkably silly to me to have to treat these books individually, but we’ll see how things turn out.

ETA: I have since learned that Blackout/All Clear is, in fact, being treated as one book.

  1. Jamie,

    Re: Blackout/All Clear – The way you listed the two books as one work is the way I’ve been recommending people do it if they want to nominate them as a whole. That is how two part TV episodes are done in the dramatic presentation short form category. The fact that Connie has been consistently saying it is one book published in two parts, I don’t see that there will be any issue with it being nominated that way.

  2. Lee, that’s good to hear. I want to make sure it’s done correctly. I told Connie at Capclave that I planned to nominate the books. I’ve nominated for Hugo’s before but this is the first time that I’m eligible to nominate and vote for the Nebulas.
