Eruditorum Press Hugo Eligibility List
Edit to add: I forgot the category in which fans of this blog could plausibly put someone on the ballot – James Taylor, cover artist for all Eruditorum Press books, is eligible for Best Fan Artist, a category that required just 23 nominations to get on the ballot last year.
Hugo nominations have officially opened. If you were registered for Sasquan, you are automatically eligible to nominate (though you’ll have to join MidAmericon II to vote); otherwise you’ll have to register for MidAmericon II. If you’re eligible, you should have an e-mail coming in the next few days with details on how to nominate.
I’m working on my nomination ballot, and will post it when it’s ready in the course of a “everybody post your ballot in comments” post. It remains my view that everyone should make their ballots public this year, just because that’s a sound anti-Puppy tactic.
Anyway, if you want to nominate anything we do over here for some bizarre reason, here’s a rough guide to it.
- Jack Graham and Jane Campbell are both eligible for Best Fan Writer. The case could be made that I am as well; I personally disagree with this case.
- Pex Lives is eligible for Best Fancast. They’re the name on the libsyn account all our other podcast content posts to, so as far as I’m concerned they get the credit for Shabcast, the Eruditorum Press Doctor Who Series 9 Podcast, City of the Dead, et cetera.
- Guided By The Beauty of Their Weapons is eligible for Best Related Work. So is Recursive Occlusion, but as it’s included in its entirety in Guided by the Beauty, why vote-split?
- TARDIS Eruditorum is eligible for Best Related Work. Yes. The entirety of it.
Eruditorum Press as a whole is not eligible; it does not meet the criteria for Best Semiprozine or Best Fanzine. TARDIS Eruditorum Volume 6 is also probably not eligible; it would depend on whether it’s considered to be “substantially revised” from its original electronic publication, and the precedent set by booting “Yes Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus” last year makes me suspect it’s not.
Now go nominate something with an actual shot at getting on the ballot.

Just to clarify this point, I consider that the Shabcast exists ‘within’ (so to speak) the umbrella that is Pex Lives.

To be honest, I’m thankful for the extra time to get my list together.

True – there are at least 3 novels in my TBR pile that I want to read before deciding and I have a project to look at very semiprozine on the Semiprozine directory to finish also. But the impatient side of me wants to start filling out the forms 🙂

If Pex Lives gets a Hugo nomination (or, god forbid, wins something) I promise that we will absolutely figure out some incredibly ridiculous shit to do as a thank you to our listeners (or people who vote for us even if they don’t listen, which is nice too).

For the record, I loved the Christmas party thing you guys did, and it makes me long for another opertunity to get the entire lot of you crammed into one three-hour episode.
So maybe that.
