- For Short Story, "Cat Pictures Please" by Naomi Kritzer (blog) is the new finalist. This is a story I nominated. In celebration, Kritzer put two collections on sale on Amazon.
- In the fanzine category, Lady Business is the new finalist. I know very little about them except that they are related to the Hugo Spreadsheet of Doom that lists tons of eligible works, but I'm excited to check out the suggested reading they've already helpfully posted.
I have started to seek out stories from both the retro and regular Hugos, and I'll eventually post reviews as I get to them.
Lastly, I will note that another finalist, Chuck Tingle, has started to get some attention for his antics. I believe, although I'm not sure, that nominating him will backfire/has backfired on the rabids.
