to our continuing presentation of the Nerds of a Feather 2023 Hugo
Award Recommendation List. Today will look at Graphic Story, and the two
Dramatic Presentation categories.
As before, we here at 'nerds of a feather, flock together' are presenting a collective longlist of potential Hugo nominees that we think are worthy of your consideration. These selections represent the spectrum of tastes, tendencies, and predilections found among our group of writers.
As a reminder, this list should not at all be considered comprehensive. Some outstanding works will not make our longlist for the simple reason that we have not seen, read, or played it. We encourage you to think of this as a list of candidates to consider alongside works which you are already familiar, nothing more and nothing less.
The Carpet Merchant of Konstantiniyya Vol. 2, by Reimena Yee Eat the Rich by Sarah Gailey, Pius Bak and Roman Titov Galaxy: The Prettiest Star by Jadzia Axelrod and Jess Taylor

Dramatic Presentation Long Form
(Note: We hope that Chengdu sees the ratification of the proposal to bring a Best Game or Interactive Experience category to the Hugo Awards. Until that time, as we have done in previous years, we are including a couple of video games here which we feel fit best under "Dramatic Presentation" rather than any other category - for now.)
