The 2014 Hugo Award nominees were announced over the weekend, and BCS is a finalist for Best Semiprozine!
Thanks very much to all who found us worthy! We are honored to be a Hugo finalist again this year, especially because this honor is for the whole magazine; all our authors and fiction.
Thank you very much to everyone who helped keep BCS this year what it has become, including Assistant Editor Emeritus Kate Marshall, Editorial Assistant Nicole Lavigne, all our authors and artists, our guest podcast narrators, and of course every one of our readers and fans.
Congratulations also to the BCS authors who had other work named finalists:
- Aliette de Bodard (“The Breath of War” in BCS #142, and many others), in Best Novelette for “The Waiting Stars”
- Rachel Swirsky (“Great, Golden Wings” in BCS #28), in Best Short Story for “If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love”
- Ann Leckie (“Beloved of the Sun” in BCS #54), in Best Novel for Ancillary Justice
- Benjanun Sriduangkaew (“Golden Daughter, Stone Wife” in BCS #144 and podcast BCS 124; “The Crows Her Dragon’s Gate” in BCS #118) for the Campbell Award for Best New Writer
And congratulations to all the other finalists in Best Semiprozine: Apex, Interzone, Lightspeed, and Strange Horizons.Those four magazines show up often in our BCS Authors Elsewhere posts of our author’s stories appearing in other magazines. It is a great age to be a F/SF short fiction reader, with such a panoply of vivid and diverse magazines, all with their own unique voice.
