We are currently updating the directory to reflect any changes in eligibility for the year ending December 31, 2016. Feel free to comment on this post if you have questions.
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.
