Retro Hugo stuff

CL Moore has a Jirel of Jiory story eligible for the Retro Hugo this year, "Quest of the Starstone" (November 1937) (with Henry Kuttner). That would be the one where Jirel meets Moore's other protagonist, Northwest Smith of Earth, a guy whose schtick is getting women to die for him because he's so darned wonderful (or the case of shambleau, tasty) and immediately dismisses him as unworthy of her attention.

Have you sent this to retro-suggest@loncon3.org ?

I'm curious why it is eligible if it is from 1937. Retro Hugos are for works appearing in 1938.

James was, it seems, confused.
