This is especially impressive given that the competition included Analog, Asimov’s Science Fiction, Beneath, Ceaseless Skies, Clarkesworld, File 770, Lightspeed, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Strange Horizons, and Uncanny.
I have no idea how much my articles on the original Star Trek, the 1966 Batman, and Luke Cage (which is what I specifically was writing about for the site in 2016) contributed to the site getting the award, but I’m happy to take at least a little bit of credit for it. My solo fiction is unlikely ever to win a Locus Award — for whatever reason, I don’t write the kind of fiction that wins awards, and I’m fine with that — but this is kinda nifty. Glad to have been part of it, and it’s been great to continue to be part of the Tor.com family, as it’s a superb site. It’s been an honor to share bloggy space with the likes of Emily Asher-Perrin, Leigh Butler, Alex Brown, Leah Schnelbach, Chris Lough, Marie Brennan, Mari Ness, Emily Nordling, Alasdair Stuart, and bunches of other folks I’m forgetting to mention because I’m really tired, but yay us!
I also want to particularly congratulate winners Charlie Jane Anders, Ellen Datlow, and Seanan McGuire, all buddies of mine. Brava!
