Uncanny Magazine Wins the 2019 Best Semiprozine Hugo Award!
We have wonderful news! Uncanny Magazine won its fourth Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine (Publishers/Editors-in-Chief Lynne M. Thomas and Michael Damian Thomas, Managing Editor Michi Trota, Podcast Producers Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky, Disabled People Destroy Science Fiction Special Issue Editors-in-Chief Elsa Sjunneson-Henry and Dominik Parisien)! We are deeply honored by this Hugo Award. It was a stellar group of finalists. We are especially excited because this Hugo Award includes the landmark Disabled People Destroy Science Fiction Special Issue.
A magazine is the work of numerous people, so we want to thank our 2018 regular staff of Michi Trota, Mimi Mondal, Erika Ensign, Steven Schapansky, Stephanie Malia Morris, Chimedum Ohaegbu, and Caroline M. Yoachim; our Disabled People Destroy Science Fiction guest editors-in-chief Elsa Sjunneson-Henry and Dominik Parisien and guest editors Nicolette Barischoff, S. Qiouyi Lu, and Judith Tarr; all of our submissions editors; and, of course, our ombudsman and world’s greatest daughter, Caitlin. Thank you to every single member of the Space Unicorn Ranger Corps and all of the Hugo voters. We couldn’t do this without the support of this community.
Once again, congratulations to the three Uncanny Magazine stories which were finalists for the Hugo Awards: “The Thing About Ghost Stories” by Naomi Kritzer for Best Novelette, “The Rose MacGregor Drinking and Admiration Society” by T. Kingfisher for Best Short Story, and “The Tale of the Three Beautiful Raptor Sisters, and the Prince Who Was Made of Meat” by Brooke Bolander for Best Short Story
Lynne M. Thomas and Michael Damian Thomas didn’t win the Best Editor- Short Form Hugo Award. A bittersweet congratulations to the winner, the late and legendary Gardner Dozois.
Congratulations to all the Hugo Awards winners and finalists. What an absolutely amazing night, ballot, and community to be part of!
