Neil Clarke has announced (via Twitter) that he is withdrawing Clarkesworld from consideration in the Hugos next year so that other semiprozines can get a look-in. I’m very happy with this.
I should note, however, that this doesn’t mean that you can’t show your appreciation for Neil and all that he does. This year he got 56 nominations in Editor: Short Form, which placed him 7th, above such luminaries as Ann VanderMeer and Gardner Dozois. What this says is that people are starting to think of Clarkesworld as a professional-quality magazine alongside the likes of Asimov’s and F&SF. If that’s where people think we belong, then I’m very happy for us to be judged in that company.
