2001 Hugo Longlist

When I started this project, I noted that there was a point at which continuing to work backwards in time to find the Hugo statistics would become exponentially more difficult. This is that point. As far as I can tell, prior to 2001, the Hugo administrators didn't, either because they could not or simply would not, post the extended Hugo statistics report in a manner that is currently accessible. I have data from the 1984 Hugos, which was reconstructed from the ballots from that year that have been made available due to an odd fluke, and I need to go back and find the data for the 1939, 1951, and 1954 Retro Hugo statistics, but after that I suspect that the only way to find more historic Hugo Longlist data is to dig it out of mostly forgotten and dusty filing cabinets.

The other thing I noted when I began this project is that the data would likely degrade in quality the further back one went in time, and that has also been proven true. In previous years, the extended list of nominees in the Semiprozine and Fanzine categories was presented without reference to the editors of those works, which made necessary a search for their identities. The 2001 data not only didn't list the editors for the nominees in the Semiprozine and Fanzine categories, they also omitted the names of the authors for all of the works nominated in the fiction categories and the Best Related Work category. I am reasonably knowledgeable concerning the authorship of science fiction stories, but even so, tracking down the identities of the authors of all of the books and stories on this Longlist was something of a chore.
