Many of you have probably heard about the controversy surrounding the 2015 Hugo Awards, which were given out (or, notably, not given out in several cases) at Worldcon over the weekend. I’m not going to get into the details, but one of the biggest disappointments around the whole thing is those deserving authors who were denied a nomination as a result. One of those was Eugie Foster.
Eugie was a good friend, my predecessor as director of the Daily Dragon at Dragon Con, and is sorely missed by all who knew her. Her final short story, “When it Ends, He Catches Her,” was published the day before she died, was nominated for a Nebula, and should have been on the Hugo ballot as well.
Eugie was a previous Hugo nominee and Nebula winner for her novellette “Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast.” A complete list of her many fiction titles is available on her website. You can’t go wrong with any of them.
