The criteria for the Semipro Zine Hugo Award category are scheduled to be revised this week at WorldCon. (Followers of this issue may remember a campaign two years ago to keep this award from being abolished.)

The committee’s proposal is quite reasonable, but there is one minority proposal that would exclude all zines that pay pro rate–such as BCS.

I’ve written an editorial explaining why this minority proposal is a ludicrous idea.

If this issue is important to you (and it should be if you read BCS or have ever sold us a story); if you will be at WorldCon, please learn about what’s at stake and go to the Thursday 10AM business meeting to make your voice heard.

Thank you.
