whee! Congrats on the best editor nomination
I am so happy "The Best Christmas Ever" and "The Voluntary State" are on the ballot.
|Posted on Saturday, March 26, 2005 - 01:32 pm: |
Thanks. I'm delighted we've done so well (also that SCIFICTION was nominated for website, although I don't think we've got a chance in hell). It'll be Locus online.
|Posted on Saturday, March 26, 2005 - 01:32 pm: |
oops and congrats on the nomination for "The Faery Handbag" from the Faery Reel and for the best website nom.
so many nominations!

Congrats to all the nominees!

Way to be, Ellen!
Quick question. How many years in a row have you been nominated now? I mean seriously, are you ever like, "Listen people, I already know I'm awesome!"
At any rate: keep it up, and many more.
|Posted on Monday, March 28, 2005 - 05:27 pm: |
Not sure. Locus Online has the records. Nominations are nice, winning is even nicer. I've won once. :-)
|Posted on Monday, March 28, 2005 - 09:09 pm: |
Ellen is awesome. A quick look at Locus online suggests something like 29 World Fantasy noms, 11 Hugo noms, 7 Stoker noms, and 54 Locus noms, and she has won 1 Hugo, 7 World Fantasy Awards, 1 Stoker, 1 International Horror Guild Award, 2 Science Fiction Chronicle Polls. The figures probably are out of date, but they give a pretty good idea of noms and such.

Jonathan. Why, thank you :-) You keep much better track than I do (re: the nominations).

Hi Ellen -
So happy to see the Hugo wins - congratulations!!
There was an editor in comics that you remind me of: a fellow named Archie Goodwin. Not only was he talented and well-respected, but we all loved him too!
Looking forward to seeing you again (soon) -
|Posted on Thursday, August 11, 2005 - 09:33 am: |
|Posted on Monday, August 15, 2005 - 01:06 pm: |
thanks all (first time I've been in here for awhile--I'm still in London but using Kim Newman's computer). James I met Archie Goodwin a few times--he was a lovely man.
Elizabeth Bear: congrats to you too :-) !!!
I get home tomorrow night. Can't wait.
