For what it is worth, here are my current nominations. Unless I find something in my "has been read" pile that I missed, I can't see this changing much. Nominees are not offered in any particular order with respect to how I would vote if my nominees were the only nominees.
A science fiction or fantasy story of forty thousand (40,000) words or more published in 2016.
|The Silent Army||James A. Moore||Angry Robot|
|A Little Knowledge||Emma Newman||Diversion Books|
|The City of Mirrors||Justin Cronin||Ballantine Books|
|Saint's Blood||Sebastein de Castell||Jo Fletcher Books|
Best Graphic Story
Any science fiction or fantasy story told in graphic form appearing for the first time in 2016.

|Outcast Vol. 3 - This Little Light||Kirkman & Azaceta||Image Comics|
Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form
Any theatrical feature or other production, with a complete running time of more than 90 minutes, in any medium of dramatized science fiction, fantasy or related subjects that has been publicly presented for the first time in its present dramatic form during 2016.
Any generally available non-professional audio or video periodical devoted to science fiction, fantasy, or related subjects that by the close of 2016 has released four (4) or more episodes, at least one (1) of which appeared in 2016, and that does not qualify as a dramatic presentation.

A multi-volume science fiction or fantasy story, unified by elements such as plot, characters, setting, and presentation, which has appeared in at least three (3) volumes consisting of a total of at least 240,000 words by the close of the calendar year 2016, at least one of which was published in 2016. If any series and a subset series thereof both receive sufficient nominations to appear on the final ballot, only the version which received more nominations shall appear. While it isn't a requirement for this category, I do not intend to nominate for a series until it has been completed. Why should a 6-volume series get four opportunities to win this award while a 3-volume series only gets one?
|Name of Series||Author||Qualifying Volume||Publisher|
|Seven Forges||James A. Moore||The Silent Army||Angry Robot|
|The Passage||Justin Cronin||The City of Mirrors||Ballantine Books|
John W. Campbell Award
Award for the best new science fiction writer, sponsored by Dell Magazines (not a Hugo Award). A new writer is one whose first work of science fiction or fantasy appeared in 2015 or 2016 in a professional publication. For Campbell Award purposes, a professional publication is one for which more than a nominal amount was paid, any publication that had an average press run of at least 10,000 copies, or any other criteria that the Award sponsors may designate.
