SemiProzine Category Saved!

Sat, August 8, 2009 (03:04 PM)

A proposal brought to this year's WorldCon would have eliminated the SemiProzine category for the Hugo award. This is not without reason: It's a rare year that Locus does win this award. Since 1996 only once has it happened (2005: Ansible).

In response to this proposal, many semiprozine publishers banded together to object, and to float some alternate ideas that would bring the definition of semiprozine more in-line with current reality.

As of this writing Cheryl Morgan tweeted from the WSFS Business Meeting: "Semiprozine now definitely safe for a couple of years."

According to Cheryl, the motion was defeated 73-32, and a committee formed to review the category.
