You can see the full list here, but I wanted to crow about a couple client nominations. The competition is pretty tough, but "it's an honor just to be nominated" or some such....

2003 Hugo Award Nominees

Best Novelette
*"Empire of Ice Cream" - Jeffrey Ford (Sci Fiction, scifi.com, Feb. 2003)
*"Bernardo's House" - James Patrick Kelly (Asimov's, June 2003)
*"Into the Gardens of Sweet Night" - Jay Lake (Writers of the Future XIX, Bridge, 2003)
*"Hexagons" - Robert Reed (Asimov's, July 2003)
*"Nightfall" - Charles Stross (Asimov's, April 2003)
*"Legions in Time" - Michael Swanwick (Asimov's, April 2003)

Go Jay! Go Jay! Go Jay!

Best Short Story
*"Paying It Forward" - Michael A. Burstein (Analog, Sept. 2003)
*"A Study in Emerald" - Neil Gaiman (Shadows over Baker Street, Del Rey, 2003)
*"Four Short Novels" - Joe Haldeman (Fantasy & Science Fiction, Nov. 2003)
*"The Tale of the Golden Eagle" - David D. Levine (Fantasy & Science Fiction, June 2003)
*"Robots Don't Cry" - Mike Resnick (Asimov's, July 2003)

Go Michael! And, okay -- Neil's not a client, but John Pelan, who edited the Shadows anthology is. Since I did my senior thesis in college on H.P. Lovecraft and have a weak spot for the Call of Cthulhu game (even if I can't get my hands on a copy of Delta Green to save my life), these anthologies are something of a full circle thing for me. So, hurray!

Best Related Book
*Scores: Reviews 1993-2003 - John Clute (Beccon Publications, 2003)
*Spectrum 10: The Best in Fantastic Contemporary Art - Cathy & Arnie Fenner (Underwood Books, 2003)
*The Chesley Awards for SF & Fantasy Art: A Retrospective - John Grant, Elizabeth L. Humphrey, & Pamela D. Scoville (Artist's & Photographer's Press Ltd., 2003)

*Master Storyteller: An Illustrated Tour of the Fiction of L. Ron Hubbard - William J. Widder (Bridge, 2003)

Jay Lake's in The Thackery Guide too -- that boy gets around.

Best Fan Artist
*Brad Foster
*Teddy Harvia
*Sue Mason
*Steve Stiles
*Frank Wu

Go Frank! Not a client -- but we sure do like him! And, he did the illustrations for Jay's Greetings from Lake Wu, published by Wheatland Press.
