Debaters Wanted

We're planning to have a balloon debate at <plokta.con> to see which of the more superfluous-seeming Hugo categories should be jettisoned, and which one should be saved, moderated by frandowdsofa. We have someone to speak up for the Best Graphic Story category; who would like to defend Best Semiprozine, Best Novelette, Best Related Book or Best Editor Long Form? It's currently scheduled for 17:00 on the Saturday.
