Congrats on the Best Editor nomination, and on Jeffrey Ford's SCIFICTION nominee. Right now I'm in the midst of trying to figure out if I'll be financially able to attend Noreascon; hopefully, I'll be able to go (and to vote).
|Posted on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 05:40 am: |
Congratulations, and well deserved.
|Posted on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 09:02 am: |
"hopefully, I'll be able to go (and to vote)"
Ah, thou needest not attend to vote . . .
Worldcon has a non-attending membership that allows one to get publications and vote. Go to the Noreascon site.
But attending is more fun . . .

Thanks Chris and chance--I'm more excited about Jeff's story being nominated than my own nomination. For anyone who hasn't yet read it it's in our archives at
|Posted on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 11:22 am: |
How come Asimov's got so many nominations? I think that F&SF and SCI-FICTION have been publishing just as much quality material. Not that I don't like Asimov's.
|Posted on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 02:39 pm: |
I assume that's a rhetorical question.
The world of award nominations works mysteriously. I'm assuming fewer people read SCIFICTION (which is silly, as it's free). Don't know about F&SF.
We had the same problem with OMNI after the first couple of years when we published at least 5-6 stories per issue. Once we went down to 2-3 it was much more difficult for us to get nominations. I'm guessing the fans were angry at the magazine for not living up to its expectations of being an sf magazine.
|Posted on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 04:18 pm: |
Just saying it is fair. Of course, life isn't either.
|Posted on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 08:18 pm: |
I think one problem might be that many people still don't like to read stories online. It's a silly prejudice, but it does exist. I would like to see more SCIFICTION nominees, but at the same time I think both Asimov's and F&SF are equally deserving, so I'm happy to see any of those on the ballot, in whatever quantity.
|Posted on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 08:25 pm: |
Whoa, I just realized that SCIFICTION is a Hugo ballot virgin -- that's unbelievable considering all the great stories you've published over the past four years.
So double congrats!
|Posted on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 09:25 pm: |
Especially, for some reason sf fans. They are often utter luddites.
Yes, I'm thrilled that we finally got a story on there.
|Posted on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 10:04 pm: |
I've noticed that, too, about SF fans being Luddites. I hardly ever see horror fans griping about having to read stories online, but I see it all the time with SF fans. It's probably hypocritical of me to say that, though, as I have my own Luddite tendencies -- I absolutely refuse to get behind the wheel of an automobile.
Oh well, hypocritical or not, I still think it's silly.
|Posted on Sunday, April 11, 2004 - 08:02 am: |
When we started doing online chats at OMNI it was the writers who didn't know how to or were resistent. The nonfiction people --scientists, futurists, etc had no problem.
There's been a great improvement over the past 7 years or so but sf writers and readers are certainly not "early adaptors." ;-)

Good work. Congrats and Wombats!

Thanks Leslie--and I just found out THE DARK won the IHG Award (see upstream)!!! Yayyy!

Congrats, Ellen. I wish you good fortune.

So when are you going to be in the same city I'm in? I'm missing London this year.

Ah, Ellen, I wish I knew at this stage. The world is in a strange state of flux.

Best of luck, Ellen. Although, in my not so humble opinion, it isn't necessary.
By the way, any interesting prospects on a new editing gig? Those of us with a taste for Ellen-picked fiction would love to know. (And of course, a simple, "yes," will suffice in case you want to keep the jinx at bay.)
|Posted on Tuesday, March 28, 2006 - 07:59 am: |
I'm working on a bunch of anthologies, at least two of which should be out in 2007. Plus I may be guest editing a magazine that would come out in 07. So keep searching the skies. I'll certainly announce things as they come out (or in production).
The Coyote Road: Trickster Tales has been turned in to Viking and will be out in 2007. That's the YA antho in the series starting with The Green Man and The Faery Reel.
