I would like to thank everyone who has supported our cause and especially everyone who showed up at today’s business meeting. Our supporters spoke eloquently and with conviction. When the vote was finally held, we won by an overwhelming majority. The Best Semiprozine Hugo will continue.
A new committee to help redefine the semiprozine and related Hugos was voted into place shortly afterwards. It will be chaired by Chris Barkley. More information on that as it becomes available.
Again, thanks to everyone involved. I have to say that everything was handled very professionally (by both sides) and it does appear that we are united in repairing the category. This is a very good day.
