Beginning this year, NESFA has maintained a list of Good Stuff to read. Any NESFA member who readings something they think is good enough to be considered for a Hugo can add it to the list. We publish it from time to time in Instant Message and on the nets. It’s neither definitive nor complete, but it contains the stories, novels and non-fiction works that a bunch of well-read fans felt were worthy of Hugo nominations.
