Space Unicorns! We have wonderful news! Uncanny Magazine won its fifth Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine (Publishers/Editors-in-Chief Lynne M. Thomas and Michael Damian Thomas, Managing/Nonfiction Editor Michi Trota, Managing Editor Chimedum Ohaegbu, and Podcast Producers Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky)! We are deeply honored by this Hugo Award. It was a stellar group of finalists.
A magazine is the work of numerous people, so we want to thank our 2019 regular staff of Michi Trota, Erika Ensign, Steven Schapansky, Joy Piedmont, Angel Cruz, Chimedum Ohaegbu, and Caroline M. Yoachim; our Disabled People Destroy Fantasy guest editors Nicolette Barischoff, Lisa M. Bradley, and Katharine Duckett. (We want to apologize to them. We accidentally omitted them from our Hugo acceptance speech. They did phenomenal jobs, & we’re so very sorry for not thanking them in our video); all of our submissions editors; all of our contributors; and, of course, our ombudsman and world’s greatest daughter, Caitlin. Thank you to every single member of the Space Unicorn Ranger Corps and all of the Hugo voters. We couldn’t do this without the support of this community.
Once again, congratulations to the three Uncanny Magazine stories that were finalists: “The Blur in the Corner of Your Eye” by Sarah Pinsker for Best Novelette, “Away With the Wolves” by Sarah Gailey (from the Disabled People Destroy Fantasy special issue) for Best Novelette, and “A Catalog of Storms” by Fran Wilde for Best Short Story!
Lynne M. Thomas and Michael Damian Thomas didn’t win the Best Editor- Short Form Hugo Award. A huge congratulations to the winner, Ellen Datlow!
Congratulations to all thewinners and finalists!
Here is our speech!
