Congratulations to all the winners, and especially to, for a sweep of the short fiction awards this year. I’m not sure I can recall the last time that happened (if, indeed, it ever has before).

Technically, I understand Mary Robinette Kowal’s “The Lady Astronaut of Mars” was originally published as part of RIP-OFF, the audiobook anthology from, in 2012, and then self-published on her website at, but the LonCon page lists it as a piece, so that’s how I have it here.

A Dribble of Ink-smallSpecial congratulations to Aidan Moher’s A Dribble of Ink, for winning both the Best Fanzine Hugo and for publishing the Best Related Work, for Kameron Hurley’s article “We Have Always Fought: Challenging the Women, Cattle and Slaves Narrative.”

And congratulations to Ann Leckie, who has now won the Nebula and Hugo award for her first novel, Ancillary Justice.

Finally, congratulations to our own Rich Horton, who in addition to being a Black Gate blogger is also the reprint editor at Lightspeed, on his bright and shiny new Hugo award. Bring it into the office so we can polish it for you, Rich!
