What They Edited, Once More

So... as we discussed below, a lot of fans don't know who to nominate for the Hugo in the two editorial categories because they don't know who edited what last year. The problem is especially acute in Long Form.

Fair enough. So I went and asked the editors I'd recommended what books they'd edited. We all benefit by being well informed, no?

You'll find the responses from Jane Johnson (Voyager) and Anne Groell (Bantam Spectra) in my post below. Today I received another answer, from DIANA PHO of Tor.

Diana worked on a LOT of titles last year, but most of them are not scheduled for release until this year or next. (And that includes HIGH STAKES, the latest volume in my Wild Cards series). The only novel on her list to be published in 2015 was LONG BLACK CURL, by Alex Bledsoe. She was also one of the editors at Tor.com, however, and in that capacity she was the editor on "The Two Weddings of Bronwyn Hyatt," by Alex Bledsoe, from last May. Three other stories she acquired for Tor.com, from Margaret Killjoy, P. Djeli Clark, and Bledsue) will be out in 2016. Diana is also responsible for BEYOND VICTORIANA, a website dedicated to multicultural steampunk ('this has been my side project for the past seven years,' she tells me). You can find it here: www.beyondvictoriana.com

Should more editors respond, I will post their credits here as well.

Consider this a Fannish Service Announcement,

The books I listed ARE the ones that came out last year. See above.

Myself, I intend to continue to vote this category as a lifetime achievement award, which is what I believe it has evolved into. Hundreds of other fans will do the same, I believe. But if you prefer to judge based only on last year, that's is certainly your right.

So long as the rocket goes to an editor worthy of the honor -- and there are many -- I will be happy.

I know they were -- but based on the form you were using, it looked like you were excluding 2014 work that was released in 2015. If not, my apologies for the misread.
