Congrats to current “Alas” blogger Mandolin and former “Alas” blogger Nojojojo for their Hugo Award nominations!
Rachel Swirsky, known on this website as “Mandolin,” is nominated in the “best novella” category for ‘‘The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers beneath the Queen’s Window’’.
Both Mandolin and Nojojojo have also been nominated for Nebula Awards this year. And in fact, this is the second year in a row that both of them have been nominated for both the Hugo and the Nebula. Which is pretty fucking incredible, when you think about it.
Congratulations to them both!
