Weird Tales Wins the Hugo!!!!!
My wife Ann, fiction editor, and Stephen Segal, creative director, just won a Hugo for Weird Tales. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!! That’s awesome! I’m so proud of her.
Ann texted me to say she’s still shaking, that she didn’t have a speech prepared so she winged it, and that the award is really really heavy.
Full list of winners posted here.
Here’s Ann at the ceremony (photo by Cheryl Morgan)…

What can we say but CONGRATS!!!!! (Relay my congratulations to Stephen too, please!) :-)
The Weird Ones stood over Locus, penknife held high. With a swift flick, the juggernaut was defeated.
Erm, Grand Weirdinian, that’s a little extreme. Just very happy for Ann. She says in the awards photo Neil Gaiman is sitting at her feet, which may actually be the thing that impresses her students.
Again, this is so cool! And you’ll have to post that photo sometime, just for the juxtaposition there :D
Congratulations! It was a great surprise but happy one.
Fabulous news. Congratulations to Ann!
That *looks* heavy. What’s it sitting on, a chunk of Montreal bedrock?
Awesome, tremendous! Congratulations to Ann, Stephen, and Weird Tales! And the sky above Connecticut rumbles with approval!
Congrats! That award looks awesome!
Hey Ann – Great news! Muchos congratulations.
Yay from this side of the pond! We’re all proud of your girl and send virtual hugs!
you bloody little ripper, ann, bonza, you beaut, it’s a bit of allright, isn’t it!!!!!!
peace and love…..
It was incredible. Ann was crying on stage and completely in shock after the ceremony. Stephen also looked completely dazed. Congratulations to both, they really deserved it.
Also, while the base of the Hugo looks somewhat plain it is actually quite a beautiful work of art. There are gorgeous flame designs under the rocket and the base itself is marble.
Congratulations to Ann & all the others on Weird Tales -team on a victory well earned! A celebration is in order. We’ll toast to your Hugo in the next Helsinki SF Mafia meeting (and to Cheryl’s & Neil’s!).
Hurrah for Weird Tales and Ann!

Please pass on my congratulations to Ann and her colleagues at Weird Tales- that’s as good as it gets, you guys must be so proud. :)
Thank you so much everyone for your good wishes. Stephen, I and Weird Tales could not have done this without all the talented contributors and readers. Thank you (I’m still a bit overwhelmed).
Congratulations, Ann – Keep up the great work!
Hurray and congrats!
