By now everyone's probably seen the list of Hugo nominees (if not, click the above link). But I thought someone should start a thread here to congratulate nominees:

Brad Denton, for "Sergeant Chip"
Paolo Bacigalupi, for "The People of Sand and Slag"

and, last, but not least

Gordon, for his Best Editor nomination.

And of course congratulations to all the other nominees, but I hope these three win. :-)

I really hope "People of Sand and Slag" wins. It was a very well-done story.

Are we going to see anything else by Mr. Bacigalupi in upcoming issues of F&SF?

Congratulations to Bradley Denton and Gordon Van Gelder. (Will we see anything from Mr. Denton in future issues?)

We have a novelet by Paolo in inventory, but I don't know when it will run.

We don't have anything by Brad in inventory, but the winner of the next F&SF contest (which will be announced in the July issue, I think) will win a signed copy of Brad's new novel, LAUGHIN' BOY.

Congrats and good luck, Gordon, Brad & Paolo!

I'd cross my fingers for you, but it's hard to type that way.

Just curious. What is the average lag time between when you accept a story and when the reader sees it in print?

Also, how far ahead do you schedule stories for each issue?

Average lag time between acceptance and publication is probably 7-9 months. In the May issue, for instance, I know I read Thurston's "I.D.I.D." on submission when I was on jury duty, so that was probably last August or September. "Imago" had a longer gestation period. "New Deity" and "Golems" came in around the same time as "I.D.I.D.," I think.

How far ahead do we schedule stories? Again, it varies, but for most stories, only a month or so before the story actually goes in the magazine.
