2010 Hugo Award Longlist

Among the revelations that come with the longlist every year is the fact that many authors seem to have had better years in the balloting than one would expect simply looking at the finalists. Robert Charles Wilson, for example, had one work place in the Best Novel finalists, but had two more show up on the longlist in the Best Novelette category. Rachel Swirsky had one story reach the finalists in the Best Novelette category, and another made the longlist. Kristine Kathryn Rusch had two stories appear on the Best Novella longlist, and Mary Robinette Kowal also had two longlisted stories: One in Best Novelette and one in Best Short Story. Mike Resnick had one story make it to the finalists, and three more appear on the longlist.

Resnick's longlisted stories contain a moderately interesting conundrum. Two of the stories that appear here were cowritten by him with his frequent collaborator Lezli Robyn, who was also nominated for the Campbell Award. The interesting thing is that in 2010, Robyn's most prominent stories were the ones she had cowritten with Resnick. The problem this poses is that it is difficult to separate Robyn's contribution from Resnick's for the purpose of voting on the Campbell Award. Apparently some voters felt comfortable doing so, as Robyn ended up doing reasonably well in the voting, placing second behind Seanan McGuire in the first pass through (although she ended up fourth overall), but how they sorted this question out remains a mystery.
