It’s incredible to me that Giganotosaurus turned seven this year and that 2017 marks my third full year as editor. From its earliest days, Giganotosaurus has existed with a single goal: publish one “longish” (longer than a short story, shorter than a novel) work of speculative fiction a month. I’m incredibly proud of the 12 stories that met our goal this year.

Since this is awards season, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on where we stand in terms of eligibility and we published this year.

As the two major awards for consideration are Hugo Awards and Nebula Awards, I’ll be focusing on our eligibility as it relates to those requirements.

Giganotosaurus is eligible for the Best Semiprozine Hugo Award.

Rashida J. Smith is eligible for the Best Editor (Short Form) Hugo Award.
