2009 Locus Poll Results

The results of the 2009 Locus poll have been published in the July issue of the magazine. They are very interesting. (Note: Although non-subscribers to the magazine may vote, last year publisher Charles Brown made the somewhat controversial decision to make subscriber votes count double non-subscriber votes.)

"The Kindness of Strangers" by Nancy Kress from Fast Forward 2came in at #4 (out of 25) for Best Short Story
"The Gambler" by Paolo Bacigalupi (Fast Forward 2) came in # 8 (out of 29) for Best Novellete
"An Eligible Boy" by Ian McDonald (Fast Forward 2) came in #26 in the same category
"True Names" by Benjamin Rosenbaum & Cory Doctorow (Fast Forward 2) came in #5 (out of 17) for Best Novella

Fast Forward 2 itself came in #6 (out of 24) for Best Anthology.

Yours Truly was #7 for Best Editor (out of 23).

Pyr was #9 for Best Publisher/Imprint (out of 23). Interestingly though, non-subscribers had us as the # 4 publisher. Which says if subscribers didn't count double, we might be higher than 9. Either way, we've moved up over last year. Thanks!

Our friend John Picacio came in #3 for Best Artist (out of 23). Most impressive!
