*Best Editor (Long Form) 2022: I declined the nomination because, although I had enough books published in the relevant period, half of them were reissues. It would have felt inconsiderate to accept the nomination in the place of other editors who had sufficient new works out (I told the Hugo committee I was ineligible, though this wasn’t technically true).
