So, we're coming up on award nomination season, in particular for the HUGOs and Nebulas. I'd like to point out what is eligible for a nomination from Zombies Need Brains this year. Basically, it's everything from the ALIEN ARTIFACTS and WERE- anthologies, but since we don't print the word counts of each story in the anthology, I've conveniently broken down the stories into which category they belong in below. Also note that Patricia Bray and I are eligible for an Editor Short Form award. If you do consider us for the editor award, please nominate us separately, rather than as a single entry, since the HUGO nominations rules in particular don’t seem to allow for dual nominations. Here’s the breakdown of eligibility:

Hmm, I've gotten my Hugo nomination ballot for this year. Just FYI, Patricia Bray and I are eligible for a Hugo as Best Editor, Short Fiction, since we had 2 anthologies released last year (ALIEN ARTIFACTS and WERE-) and we've had more than four anthologies released so far overall. If you're eligible to nominate for the Hugo's, consider adding us to your Editor Short Form nomination list.

Also, all of the stories in ALIEN ARTIFACTS and WERE- are eligible in either the short story or novella categories. I'll get a better write-up for these (indicating which are short stories and which are novellas) later, but you can start thinking about whether any of those stories are worthy of nomination now.
