From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hugo Award for Best Editor Short Form is a Hugo Award that has been given from 2007 on, to an editor of short fiction, typically in science fiction magazines.

World Science Fiction Society Constitution, subsection 3.3.8 defines eligibility as "the editor of at least four (4) anthologies, collections or magazine issues primarily devoted to science fiction and/or fantasy, at least one of which was published in the previous calendar year."

This category was created at the 2006 WSFS Business Meeting (at 64th World Science Fiction Convention LAcon IV) by splitting the Hugo Award for Best Professional Editor into Best Editor Short Form and Best Editor Long Form. The idea, promoted for several years, was to recognize book editors, as so far the editor Hugo had overwhelmingly been awarded to magazine editors. However opposition to it caused adoption of an amendment by which the split may be reversed by simple majority at the 2009 or 2010 Business Meeting.
