2022 Hugo Nominations

Nominations for the 2022 Hugo Awards, the Lodestar Award for Best Young Adult Book, and the Astounding Award for Best New Writer closed on Tuesday, March 15 at 11:59 pm PDT (UTC−07:00).  The finalists will be announced on Thursday, April 7 at 11 am EDT (UTC-04:00).  The winners will be presented at Chicon 8, currently scheduled for September 1-5, 2022.

I cut it pretty close this year receiving my final confirmation only about four and half hours before the deadline.  Between the late Hugo ceremony last year and being busy with other things, I didn’t get nearly as much looked at as I would have liked.  There are things that I see now I forgot and other changes I might have made with more time to consider.  Nevertheless, here is what I submitted:
