Stanley Schmidt of Analog Magazine Wins Hugo Award

Stanley Schmidt, the editor who bought my first story and nurtured my science fiction writing career, won a Hugo Award for Best Editor tonight.

He's been nominated every year for over thirty years and never won. He had retired as editor of Analog last year, and so this was his last chance to win.

I am delighted he won. I wouldn't have had a writing career without Stanley Schmidt. I owe everything to him.
