2013 Hugos: Best Related Work

I found this a pretty easy ranking.

No vote (probably): Writing Excuses Season Seven. This is a podcast and I just don't think I will get around to listening to a representative sample of these, and unlike last year I don't think I will have time to hunt out the scripts.

4) “I have an Idea for a Book ...”: The Bibliography of Martin H. Greenberg. This has roughly six pages of introductory text and is then basically what it says on the tin, a list of books edited by Greenberg. Rerally not very interesting.

3) Chicks Dig Comics: A Celebration of Comic Books by the Women Who Love Them, ed. Lynne M. Thomas & Sigrid Ellis. This is more like it, a compilation of fan essays, some of which are very good, but on a part of the genre that I know less well.

2) Chicks Unravel Time: Women Journey Through Every Season of Doctor Who, ed. Deborah Stanish & L.M. Myles. Good fun, on one of my favourite topics, with a couple of very good essays and a couple of rather poor ones. Loses a couple of points for charmingly confusing internal organisation. Will probably win anyway.

1) The Cambridge Companion to Fantasy Literature, ed. Edward James & Farah Mendlesohn. Very good indeed, and will still be around for years to come. Not completely included in the Hugo Voter Packet which may harm its chances, but really you should go and get it.
