08:28 pm - 1939 Retro Hugo Nominees Announced
The 1939 Retro Hugo Nominees have been announced, and the full list of finalists can be read here.

A few women did make the ballot!
Best Novella: Anthem by Ayn Rand (Cassell)
Best Novelette: “Werewoman” by C. L. Moore (Leaves #2, Winter 1938)
Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form): The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells. Written by Howard Koch & Anne Froelick, directed by Orson Welles (The Mercury Theater on the Air, CBS)
Best Professional Artist: Margaret Brundage
Best Fanzine: Imagination! edited by Forrest J Ackerman, Morojo, and T. Bruce Yerke

I have checked with Sasquan, and they shan't be hosting the 1940 Retro Hugos. Many thanks to everyone who helped with this project, and I hope you enjoyed discovering these forgotten authors as much as I did.

See you all at Loncon3!
