After taking a year or so off, I am going to participate in the Hugo Awards again this year. So, this post is the first of several which will allow me to publicly work through my thoughts on who I would like to nominate for a Hugo Award. Unlike previous years I have nominated, I have been much less involved in the short fiction scene, so I'm going to actively seek out recommendations for the short fiction categories.
This is a start and is currently in no particular order. My next post on this will start to narrow. This is just what I am thinking about right now before doing more serious work to narrow down the categories.
