My 2014 Hugo Nominations Ballot

hugo_rocketSince the nomination window has now closed for the Hugo Awards, which means I can’t change my mind any more, I thought, like many others before me, I’d post my Hugo Nomination Ballot. Not just to share what I nominated but also so I can do a comparison once the nominations are announced to see whether any of my nominations made it through and later on what my predictions are and after LonCon what I got right. There are several categories where I haven’t nominated anyone or anything, because I either hadn’t read or seen anything in said category or because I just don’t know enough about it to judge. So without further ado here are my nominations.
