Save the Semiprozine Hugo

Now here's a movement I can totally get behind--saving the Hugo Award for best semiprozine, which refers to "semiprofessional" magazines. While that term may sound strange, it basically covers the small magazines which publish professional-level work, publications like Interzone, Locus, The New York Review of Science Fiction, and so on. The problem certain people have with the award is that Locus ends up winning it most years, so these folks think the entire category should be done away with. I strongly disagree.

Neil Clarke, the publisher and editor of Clarkesworld Magazine, also hates the idea and has started a campaign to convince WorldCon attendees to save the award. Check out Neil's site to learn more about the award, and pass the word on saving this Hugo.
