I think I'm just about glutted on short fiction. I won't say my ballot choices are final, but aside from a novel or two, I'm not eager to do much more reading.

Novel hasn't changed since my first Hugo post: I've nominated The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin, Ariah by B. R. Sanders, The Sorceror of the Wildeeps by Kai Ashante Wilson, Lagoon by Nnedi Okorafor, and The Philosopher Kings by Jo Walton.

For novella, I'm nominating The Pauper Prince and the Eucalyptus Jinn by Usman T. Malik, Sunset Mantle by Alter Reiss, Binti by Nnedi Okorafor, Quarter Days by Iona Sharma, and The Bone Swans of Amandale by C. S. E. Cooney.

For novelette, "Jamaica Ginger" by Nalo Hopkinson and Nisi Shawl (from Stories For Chip), So Much Cooking by Naomi Kritzer, Ballroom Blitz by Veronica Schanoes, Asymptotic by Andy Dudak, and Saltwater Railroad by Andrea Hairston.

For short story, The King in the Cathedral by Rich Larson, Seven Wonders of a Once and Future World by Caroline M. Yoachim, Two to Leave by Yoon Ha Lee, The Apartment Dweller's Bestiary by Kij Johnson, and Cat Pictures Please by Naomi Kritzer.

For graphic story, Sandman: Overture, The Wicked + The Divine vol. 2: Fandemonium, Widdershins: Green-Eyed Lady, The Sculptor, and Astro City: Lovers Quarrel.

For dramatic presentation, Daredevil (Season 1) and Jessica Jones (Season 1), on Netflix.

Also worth noting, Abigail Nussbaum posted this list of her Hugo picks. This came to my attention because some idiots were giving her crap for saying she'd mostly read stories that were available for free online; it seems worth noting that, even though there's no overlap between her short story/novelette picks and mine, she has picked what I consider to be strong stories, and her fifteen choices include stories from nine different publishers, which is more diversity than I managed. You could do worse for suggestions.
