2016 Hugo Best Editor (Short Form) Data
We combined results from eight reviewers across six magazines and nine anthologies (~560 science fiction and fantasy short stories, novelettes, and novellas in all) to produce data to help people make nominations for the 2016 Hugo Awards in the Best Editor (short form) category. It's not a slate--we give examples on how to use the data based on your personal preferences to create your own list.

A brief note before I tweet this - Patrick Nielsen Hayden's last name is Nielsen Hayden, not just Hayden. You use the latter a couple of times.

(And it's super cool and I want to tell all my SF-interested friends! But figured you might want to clean that up first.)

Thanks! We fixed it. And we appreciate you tweeting it. :-)

To our list of 2016 Hugo Awards Recommendation Pages we just added support for two more categories:

Best Professional Artist

Best Fan Artist

We're very proud of these two because we think they enormously ease the problem of finding artists to nominate. We found dozens of artists who were published in magazines, books, and semi-prozines in 2015 (and so are unquestionably eligible), provided links to their pictures, and set up a "lightbox" system to make it easy to flip through the images quickly and efficiently. We also provided links to the artists' home pages and galleries, where possible.

It's not perfect (there are lots and lots of fan artists out there) but it makes it a lot easier to find someone you feel good about nominating. (Figure 10 to 20 minutes of time.) And it's even fun.
