F&SF editor, Gordon Van Gelder, despite long odds, has just won himself a Hugo Award for Best Editor, Short Form.

Wahoo! Way to go Gordon!

One would think that since Asimov's has swept the short fiction Hugo's this year that Sheila Williams would have won hands down (and analytically, why not?), but nope, the amazing GVG in a dark horse, surprise, come-from-behind victory has copped the trophy.

What can I say but Well Deserved, Gordon, and enjoy every moment of it!

Thanks, folks. I thought the awards were next weekend so it was a surprise to read the news on LOCUS---a big surprise, since I really didn't expect to win this year. I'll be curious to see the way the voting broke down this year.

Funny, my second reaction to the news (after laughing at the absurdity that ASIMOV'S swept the short fiction awards but somehow Sheila didn't win) was to feel guilty. I asked Carol Pinchefsky to accept on my behalf, figuring she'd enjoy getting to sit in the front rows for the ceremony. But now I'm concerned that she'll have to schlep that trophy all the way home from Japan. I hope they can ship it instead.

Looking at the results again, I have to say I'm really pleased to be in such company. All the categories this year turned out well, in my opinion. I'm particularly glad to see Ian McDonald win. And I would have been outraged if Julie Phillips's Tiptree bio hadn't won.

If I had known that they were giving away Ultraman statues, I would not have held back.

:-)

Congrads GVG!

I have a question. Who did you have to bribe and how much did it cost?

What? You say you had to pay many great stories to your readers? Well, that's all fine and dandy, but it hardly helps me with my quest to win my owm award for editing Bailey's Banal Speculative Fiction coming eventually to a dumpster near you.

Congratulations!

Nice to hear, Gordon. The Oct/Nov issue is a superb example of why. Congratulations!
