All Quiet on the Horizon

Chaos Horizon has been dark for a while and is likely to continue to be so. The Hugos just got awarded, and several people have reached out to me to make sure everything is fine on my end. Things are absolutely great for me; I got that dreaded promotion at work, with a a huge pile of new duties and responsibilities. That’s left me with little time for the kind of intensive writing and research that Chaos Horizon took.

The Hugos have also changed; new EPH voting rules and a shifting Hugo demographic mean that data from past years is not that relevant for modelling future Best Novel awards. We need at least a few more years of EPH data for Chaos Horizon to make any interesting predictions, and we’ll need to see who will win the Hugo in a year where Jemisin hasn’t published a novel.

Long and short, expect things to be quiet over here for the foreseeable future. Chaos Horizon was a lot of fun to work on, and I hope to get back to crunching Hugo numbers someday when I’m not as busy. Thanks to everyone who supported the blog and keep on reading SFF!
