Directory Updated for 2018

We’ve done a quick review of the eligible markets from 2017 and updated it to reflect 2018 eligibility. To our knowledge, no one has graduated to professional or declared that they would not be participating this year. Editors, if your eligible magazine is not on our list, email books -at- clarkesworld.com.

Directory is now updated for 2017

A large number of the 2016 semiprozines didn’t produce issues in 2017 and have been moved to the “may be eligible next year” category. To our knowledge, no one has graduated to professional or declared that they would not be participating this year. Editors, if your eligible magazine is not on our list, email books -at- clarkesworld.com.

Changes to the Semiprozine Directory

The following magazines are no longer eligible for the Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine:

  • Apex Magazine
  • The Dark
  • Lightspeed Magazine
  • Nebula Rift
  • New Realm

All five are now considered professional by the rules for the category. We’d like to congratulate them on their success and point out that this demonstrates that the revised rules are working as intended.

Please do not nominate these publications, even if you enjoyed them. You’d be tossing away your nomination. Please see the latest edition of the directory for an up-to-date status on eligible nominees. If a market you are interested in is not on the list, please let us know.
