  1. You have listed these anthologies as being eligible for the Hugo Award for Best Related Work. I don’t think that is so. The definition of the category in the WSFS Constitution says that “Any work … which is either non-fiction or, if fictional, is noteworthy primarily for aspects other than the fictional text,…” Inasmuch as these are primarily fiction anthologies, they would not be eligible in any category. Even if the works receive lots of nominations, the Administrator may rule that they are nominations for an ineligible work and thus do not count. (I am not the current administrator, although I have been one three times in the past. I do not speak officially for anyone but myself here.)

    The Hugo Awards do not have a category of Best Anthology. Collections of non-fiction works have appeared in (and won) the category, but fiction anthologies aren’t eligible because the individual contributions to the anthology are individually eligible in the “story” category based on their length.

    It would be possible add a Best Anthology category to the Hugo Awards. The earliest it could be first presented would be 2017 unless the 2016 Worldcon elected to use its authority to create a one-shot category for that purpose. It would require amending the WSFS Constitution, a process described on the Hugo Awards web site. I’m one of a number of people who are available to help anyone who wants to try to change the Hugo Award rules craft the proposals to bring before the WSFS Business Meeting, which is of course open to every attending member of the current World Science Fiction Convention.
