2017 Awards Season (Hugos, etc.): All the Eligible Things from a Year of Skiffy and Fanty!

30 Jan

Last year, we were honored to have many incredible authors, bloggers, and others, either on the show or posting guest blog posts on our page and we love being able to share their work with you. Many of our guests and our members are eligible for awards so we hope you’ll take a minute to go over this list, just to make sure you don’t miss anything when you do your nominations (eta: the Hugo nominations aren’t due until March so you have plenty of time to get reading)!

The Skiffy and Fanty Crew

First, here’s all of the crew’s eligible things, whether they be books, podcasts, fan writing, or illegal snart freezing (I’m looking at you, Mike):

The Skiffy and Fanty Show (Best Fancast)

As always, The Skiffy and Fanty Show is eligible in the Best Fancast category, for which we’ve been nominated for a Hugo award before (thank you so much for your continued support!).  If you choose to nominate us again, that would be awesome.  Make sure to include all of the podcasting crew on your ballot (Shaun Duke, Julia Rios, Mike Underwood, Rachael Acks, Paul Weimer, David Annandale, Trish Matson, and Jen Zink).  And, again, thank you for supporting us in the past.  It is awesome pants.
