Chesley Nominations

ASFA has announced this year's nominations for the Chesley Awards.

I was very pleased to see that Magali Villenueve was nominated for her extraordinary and beautiful work on this year's Ice & Fire calendar.





My congratulations to Magali. She faces some formidable competition, but we'll be rooting for her. She's a very talented young artist, and I hope we'll be seeing a lot more of her work in the years and decades to come.

Also, I see that Richard Anderson is up for best hardcover cover for his cover for my friend Vic Milan's novel DINOSAUR LORDS. Well deserved. It's a stunning cover.

FILE 770 has the whole list here:

((I do wish that the Hugo Awards would get rid of the 'Best Professional Artist' category, and go with a Best Cover award instead, like the Chesleys. Reward the work, not the person)).

If someone writes down "Whoever illustrated The World of Ice and Fire", do you put it on the ballot?
Possibly nowhere, because people wouldn't be eligible for a work category. The book itself would be eligible for Best Related Work if so nominated. However, there's a precedent for Best Original Artwork, in that Dinotopia: The World Beneath won the 1996 Hugo Award for Best Original Artwork, a decision that did not sit well with everyone.
As for a Day 5 business meeting, do we need a rule change to have a cash bar in the back?
No rule change needed, just money. Lots of it. Convention center catering is phenomenally expensive.

BYOB
I'm never going to get away with bringing a cooler into the meeting, am I? Looks like I'll be bringing in a flask or two.

That's between you and the Convention Center security. It's not the convention being mean; it's convention centers enforcing their contractual monopoly.
