Hugo nominations are officially open, which means it’s time for the annual eligibility post.

This year, the Helsinki Worldcon is doing a trial of a new category for Best Series, which is defined as:

…a multi-volume science fiction or fantasy story, unified by elements such as plot, characters, setting, and presentation, which has appeared in at least three volumes consisting of a total of at least 240,000 words by the close of the calendar year 2016, at least one volume of which was published in 2016.

Revisionary - Cover Art by Gene MollicaAs it happens, the fourth and final volume of the Magic ex Libris series came out in 2016. If you feel it deserves a Best Series nod, nomination info is:

  • Name of Series: Magic ex Libris
  • Author: Jim C. Hines
  • Qualifying Volume: Revisionary
  • Publisher: DAW

If you’re looking for other ideas about what to nominate, SFWA president Cat Rambo has a roundup of eligibility posts on her blog.

I’m planning to nominate a few of my favorite Steven Universe episodes, along with Kubo and the Two Strings. I didn’t read that many 2016 works, so I’m going to have to do a bit of research there.

What are your standouts from 2016 that you’d like to see on the award ballots this year?
