Voting for the Hugos closes tomorrow!
Deciding how to rank a lot of really stellar work has been really challenging, but this is a good problem to have. I would much rather have this problem than the one we had the past few years.
Here’s a all my posts about the fiction finalists–just in case you’re still tinkering with your ballot. I keep making changes to my to my ballot and the order in which I reviewed items or listed them here is in no way indicative of how I am voting. With a handful of notable exceptions, I would be thrilled if any of these finalists won. It’s a great ballot.
