I will link the rest of the stories when they are available and then I'll start discussing each category as I read the stories.

Initial thought: Fantasy and Science Fiction had a very good year.
Second thought: I really wish Mary Robinette Kowal was nominated for "For Solo Cello, op. 12", but it shouldn't come as a surprise that I am a fan of her's.
