This is our second time as a finalist in the Best Fanzine category, and we're super thrilled to be here. To everyone who nominated us and our friends and supporters who read and recommend our work: thank you! We're so glad you enjoy our work and find us worthy of this award. You help make this project fun and rewarding and we appreciate you all so much!

Thanks to Worldcon 75 and the World Science Fiction Society for all their work to manage the Hugo Awards. Running the award is a massive undertaking, and it's done entirely by volunteers — fans! — and we are stoked to be a part of it.
