A huge thank you to the voters for the nomination, and congratulations to all their fellow finalists. Congratulations to Tina Connolly, S. B. Divya, Benjamin C. Kinney, Mur Lafferty, T, Adam Pracht, Norm Sherman,and the entire Escape Pod team! Currently, Divya, Mur, Tina Benjamin, and Iwill all be attending WorldCon in San Jose when the winners are announced.
This is massive. We are the first audio-specific publication to make it to this category and I cannot correctly articulate how much it means to see over a decade of hard work from so many people honored like this. Outstanding work, folks! Escape Pod will see you in San Jose
