Finley was good, but Kelly Freas was GREAT. Humorous, too.
In the results breakdown under”Best Fanzine”, “Zombie” should be “Le Zombie”.
Sam L-Since Freas first published work was in 1950, he would have not been eligible for the 1943 award. And, no offense to you but as a general observation, I think this is the major fallacy of the Retro Hugos, especially in the fan categories. People who have not gone back and looked at who was actually doing outstanding work in the year in question (in this case, 1943), tend to just vote on the names they know, many times because they are also pros, from their more recent work.
So… does this count as Isaac Asimov’s first Hugo Award?
Not even if you count Retrospective Hugo Awards as being for years before Hugo Awards presented in past years. Asimov won the 1966 Hugo Award for Best All-Time Series for The Foundation Trilogy, as well as the 1941 Retro-Hugo Award in 2016 for Best Short Story for “Robbie.”
