BASFA 1939 Retro-Hugo Award Recommendations: Best Short Story

As in previous years, the Bay Area Science Fiction Association held Hugo (and Campbell) Recommendation Nights in February and March and we are posting our accumulated recommendations in a series of entries here. This year we also considered the 1939 Retrospective Hugo Awards for works originally published in 1938.

A key to the initials of the people making recommendations is in basfa's community journal. This post may change if we receive additional recommendations from club members.

Beyond the Wall of Sleep (H.P. Lovecraft): BL, DC, DNO, MYS, SM
The Ephemerae (Edmond Hamilton): BL
The Faithful (Lester del Rey): BL
Helen O'Loy (Lester del Rey): BL, JOH
The Momento (John Collier): BL, KAS, MYS
Rule 18 (Clifford D. Simak): BL, DC
The Singer in the Mist (Robert E. Howard): BL, DC
The Tree (H.P. Lovecraft): BL, DNO, MYS

Comments

Not to be a total killjoy, but I think that the March 1938 appearance in Weird Tales of "Beyond the Wall of Sleep" is a reprint. According to the Internet Speculative Fiction Database, this short story appeared in the October 1934 issue of The Fantasy Fan, so I suspect that the Hugo Administrator may disallow it if submitted on a nomination ballot.
