I assume you're only counting the fiction categories here. Because if not, then Fred Pohl could easily beat Jack Williamson's record by winning the Hugo for Best Fan Writer again in 2013.

I only ever count the fiction categories! (With due respect to your own past successes.)

This restriction would be a lot more sensible if you didn't clutter up your lists with the ridiculous "retro-Hugos". And more useful.

drplokta: Because if not, then Fred Pohl could easily beat Jack Williamson's record by winning the Hugo for Best Fan Writer again in 2013.

But he would not be the oldest guy to win a Hugo. Days after his 94th birthday last year, Jack Vance won a Hugo for Best Related Work for This is Me, Jack Vance! (Or, More Properly, This is “I”). As I like to point out, 2010's Best Fan Writer winner, age 91, was the second-oldest guy to win a Hugo that night.

Anyway, Fred is still writing fiction, so he still has a shot at the fiction categories...

Ah.. that's pretty rarefied company. I wonder if a story of mine will ever join theirs.

1. Are you under 30?

2. If not, when you write the best story of your life, lock it up until you are 65, then publish it, win a Hugo or Nebula or both, and get nwhyte to add it to his list. Simple!

I'll be 68 in August. Why do you think I asked about winners in this age group?

*shrug* Coulda been just curiosity.

Please accept my sincere wish that your work may someday appear in this company!

I accept your sincere wishes from the bottom of my heart. And I'm happy to make your acquaintance.

Here's a link to a discussion about age and length of careers of Worldcon professional Guests of Honor at the time of their Worldcons.

Thank you for that. It looks very interesting. I'll 'peruse' it later this morning.
