This is a draft of my ballot for the Fan Writer category in this year's Hugo nominations.
- Abigail Nussbaum, who blogs at Asking the Wrong Questions (there are links to her reviews at other sites in the sidebar).
- coffee & ink, who blogs at coffeeandink.
- K. Tempest Bradford, who blogs all over but principally, for these purposes, at her own site and at The Angry Black Woman.
- Possibly James Nicoll, who blogs at james_nicoll; as much as I enjoy his LJ, I tend to think of it more as a news source and discussion place than a source of his writing.
- Possibly Deepa D., who blogs at deepad; she doesn't post as much as any of the rest of the people on this list, but her posts in January 2009 alone were beautifully written and important.
And though I feel deeply awkward in saying this, the nomination stats indicate that I have previously been nominated in the Fan Writer category by more people than just Chad. So I feel obligated to point out that while my writing here and at my sadly-neglected booklog is non-professional, my writing for Tor.com is professional and thus should not be considered in this regard.
