SF/F Authors/Editors/Artists/Fans 2014 Award Awareness Post

For the last few of years, after noting my own award-eligible works, I’ve posted another thread for other folks in the science fiction and fantasy field to make potential award nominators aware of their works and/or personal award eligibility. It turned out to be pretty useful, so I’m doing it again this year. Right now! In this comment thread, even.

So if you’re a science fiction and fantasy author, editor, or artist: Tell us what works of yours (or if you in yourself) are eligible for award consideration this year. The site gets up to 50,000 visitors a day, many of whom nominate for Hugos/Nebulas/Other genre awards, so it’s a decent way to get the word out.

And now: Rules (posted word for word from last year)!

1. This thread is only for authors/artists/editors to promote their own works (or in the case of editors, the works they have edited). If you’re not an author/artist/editor promoting your own work, don’t post on the thread. I’ll be doing a general recommendation thread later on in the year. Any comment not by an author/artist/editor promoting his/her own work will get snipped out. This is to keep the thread useful both to creators and to folks thinking about nominations.

2. Also, to be clear, this thread is for works of or relating to science fiction and fantasy. This includes Young Adult works and SF/F fandom-related works. If you’re not sure your particular work is eligible for awards this year, please check. A general rule of thumb is that works published in the 2013 calendar year are eligible for consideration for this year’s awards nominations.

3. Authors/Artists/Editors: Feel free to either list your eligible works in the comments and/or link to a blog post outlining your eligible works, if you’ve already done the latter.

4. If you list your work, please also mention the category you expect it will be eligible in, to help folks with their nomination choices. My assumption is that generally speaking you’ll use the Hugo and Nebula categories, but if another award has a category outside those, feel free to list it too (for example, anthologies). Note to short fiction writers: This will be especially important for you to do this because people may not know whether to file your work into the short story, novelette or novella categories.

5. If you want to include links to your works, please feel free, but be aware that posts with many links may be initially punted into the moderation queue. Don’t panic when that happens, I’ll be going through regularly to free them. HOWEVER, please make sure that before you post, you check all your links and formatting.

6. One post per creator/editor, please.

So: Authors! Artists! Editors! What do you want people to keep in mind for this awards nomination season?

232 Comments on “SF/F Authors/Editors/Artists/Fans 2014 Award Awareness Post”

  1. Follow this link to see what I have eligible this year.

    Also, before anyone asks, yes, if you have work eligible in the Hugo fan categories (fan writer, fan artist, fanzine, fancast) you may post about them in this thread.

    Also, because it will be asked: Short stories are up to 7,500 words; novelettes are 7,501 to 17,500; novellas are 17,501 to 40,000; novels are 40k and above.

    Otherwise, it’s up to you to find out whether your works are eligible for consideration this year. This is NOT the thread to ask. Do your own research, please. Google (or Bing, if you want to be crazy) is your friend.

  2. The Last President. From Ace/Penguin, Sept 2013. Novel. I find it rather doubtful that anyone other than a very small odd coterie would think of it for an award. But I am very grateful for my coterie’s oddness, however small they may be.

  3. I’m not too sure how this works, but I wrote Game Slaves, it’s YA-and-up science fiction. It was on the Fall ’13 Harcourt list, but actually comes out Jan. 7.
    (The thing I’m most excited about is I get to be a Scalzi Big Idea next week.)
    >My site is gard3.com, thanks again Mr. S.

    [Note: if the book is actually published in 2014, it’s not eligible for Hugo/Nebula consideration at the very least. Again, folks, the best idea is to promote work which is published in the 2013 calendar year –JS]

  4. Hi all! I’m K.B. Spangler, creator of the A Girl and Her Fed universe. The first novel set in this world, DIGITAL DIVIDE, was published in April 2013 and is eligible for the Hugo. It is a self-published work, so attention from the community is absolutely valuable.

    (Free samples of its upcoming sequel, MAKER SPACE, are available for persons unfamiliar with the world and the writing style.)

  5. Glad you made specific mention of the fan categories, because I wasn’t sure podcast editing was the type of editing to which you referred. :)

    I’m the technical producer and one of the cohosts of the Doctor Who podcast Verity! http://veritypodcast.com/

    My fellow cohosts are Deborah Stanish, Katrina Griffiths, L.M. Myles, Lynne M. Thomas, and Tansy Rayner Roberts. We are eligible in the Best Fancast category.

    Our tagline is “Six smart women discussing Doctor Who.” I think that pretty much says it all.

  6. Amazing Stories for the Fanzine category of the Hugo Awards.

    We’ve published 2,073 articles of interest to fans of the genre, not to mention fan history, con reports and many other things typically found in fanzines. We’ve been running continuously for a year (multiple “issues”), have received work from 132 different contributors and, while we do take in some advertising (most is for and from contributors), no one has come anywhere close from receiving compensation in monetary form.
    As the publisher, I think the 125+ folks who have been doing yeoman’s work for the past year deserve the recognition.

  7. PROMISE OF BLOOD, Orbit Books, April 2013
    Eligible for Best Novel and the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.

    “The Girl of Hrusch Avenue,” June 2013
    “Hope’s End,” September 2013
    Both eligible for best novelette.

  8. Thank you for doing this, John.

    I had two novels published in 2013:

    Necessary Evil, the third and final book of my Milkweed series, was published by Tor (US) and Orbit (UK) in April.

    Something More Than Night, a standalone novel, was published by Tor (US) in December.

    And I had one novelette (8800 words) published in 2013. “What Doctor Ivanovich Saw” was published in the Fall 2013 issue of Subterranean Press Magazine.

  9. Thanks for the opportunity, John!

    I had one novel published in 2013, which is eligible for Hugo and Nebula nomination. That novel was THE AGE ATOMIC, and it was published by Angry Robot in April 2013. It’s a sequel to my debut, EMPIRE STATE.

    You can find out more about THE AGE ATOMIC at my site:


    CNN said it was “a blast for sci-fi fans”, and Barnes and Noble said it “plays like Alan Moore interpreted by Michel Gondry, with President Eisenhower doing the voiceovers.”

    Which is nice!

    I’m also in my second year of eligibility for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. I didn’t make the shortlist last year, but I was 12th on the longlist. Which is also nice :)

    Thanks again!

  10. Thanks yet again for the platform to do this, John. It’s very appreciated.

    Hello, fearless readers of Whatever! I’m Samuel Montgomery-Blinn, and I edit a short fiction semiprozine, Bull Spec, which this year managed one issue:


    We didn’t get many reviews this time around, so the stories could really use your consideration. They are all of the “short story” variety:

    * “Ancilla” by Brenda Cannon Kalt is a lovely near-future, Mars-set sf piece
    * “Here Be Dragons” by Elizabeth Creith is a post-apocalyptic story of genetic mutation
    * “Nahuales” by Silvia Moreno-Garcia is a Mexican-influenced short horror piece with quite a kick
    * “Barren Sky” by Rich Matrunick is a secondary world sf piece of struggle
    * “Call Down the Snow” by Gwendolyn Clare is a short lyric contemporary mythopoetic fantasy piece

    Also, I entreat your consideration of the cover artist, Cynthia Sheppard, for best professional and/or best fan artist. Here, her standalone piece “Omens” really is fantastic, having seen it in person. Additional artists represented in the issue are Jason Strutz, Gabriel Dunston, Angi Shearstone, and newcomer Alice Holleman, whose lovely work for “Nahuales” really is fantastic. Also, Richard Davis, for his portrait of Ray Bradbury which I reprinted in the issue.

    For your “best fan writer” consideration, I offer you:

    * Paul Kincaid, whose work over a stellar career in sf stands for itself, and whose review and interview of Kim Stanley Robinson (for “2312”) is published in the issue
    * Richard Dansky, for his appreciation of Ray Bradbury
    * Jason Erik Lundberg, for his review of Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84

    For “best graphic story”, the issue included the concluding 4th installment of “The Long Lives of Heroes” by Jeremy Whitley (story) and Jason Strutz (art).

    Also, along with PodCastle’s Dave Thompson I co-blog about sf and fantasy audiobooks at The AudioBookaneers:


    We’re both eligible for “Best Fan Writer” for that, and the website is itself eligible as a fanzine.

    Lasly, and this likely pushes the boundaries of acceptability just a bit, Bull Spec #8 includes an excerpt of Mur Lafferty’s “The Shambling Guide to New York City”; the novel as a whole is eligible in the Best Novel category.

  11. Thanks for the plug space, John.

    So I have two works that came out in 2013 that are eligible:

    My novel, The Shining Girls, , about a time-travelling serial killer and the survivor who turns the hunt around.

    And Fairest Vol 2: The Hidden Kingdom , my graphic novel with the amazingly talented Inaki Miranda is also eligible. It’s a dark Japanese remix of Rapunzel set in Bill Willingham’s Fables universe with yokai, yakuza, yurei, wicked witches, love, genocide and bad hair days.

    (And I will save my recommends on OTHER people’s work for the appropriate post.)

  12. A near-future novel, THE RED: FIRST LIGHT, and three short stories: “Through Your Eyes” (Asimov’s, April/May 2013), “Out In The Dark” (Analog, June 2013), and “Halfway Home” (Nightmare Magazine, September 2013). Details and links are on my blog: http://hahvi.net/?p=3716

  13. Charlie Stross here.

    I have two eligible items in 2012:

    1) NOVELLA – Equoid (published on Tor.com, read it right here!). It’s a stand-alone story set in the universe of the Laundry Files. Warning: not suitable for fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Or Unicorns. Especially Unicorns.

    2) NOVEL – Neptune’s Brood (published by Ace in the USA and Orbit in the UK). It’s a space opera about space pirates, accountants, and the inadvisability of interplanetary travelling churches. Also contains Communist Space Squid. Warning: probably not suitable for fans of Bitcoin!

  14. After a 15 year hiatus, I returned to editing books in 2013 with two anthologies.

    THE APES OF WRATH (Tachyon Publications, March 2013 http://www.tachyonpublications.com/book/ApesOfWrath.html)

    RAYGUNS OVER TEXAS (FACT, September 2013 http://www.fact.org/publications.shtml)
    Every story within RAYGUNS, save two, are originals and thus eligible for awards.

    The eligible stories:

    “Babylon Moon” by Matthew Bey
    “Texas Died for Somebody’s Sins But Not Mine” by Stina Leicht
    “The Nostalgia Differential” by Michael Moorcock
    “Novel Properties of Certain Complex Alkaloids” by Lawrence Person
    “Rex” by Joe R. Lansdale
    “The Atmosphere Man” by Nicky Drayden
    “Operators are Standing By” by Rhonda Eudaly
    “The Art of Absence” by Don Webb
    “Grey Goo and You” by Derek Austin Johnson
    “Defenders of Beeman County” by Aaron Allston
    “Sovereign Wealth” by Chris N. Brown
    “Jump the Black” by Marshall Ryan Maresca
    “Timeout” by Neal Barret, Jr.
    “Pet Rock” by Sanford Allen
    “Take a Left at the Cretaceous” by Mark Finn
    “The Chambered Eye” by Jessica Reisman
    “Best Energies” by Josh Rountree

  15. I published two short stories in 2013: “Best of All Possible Worlds” in the February issue of Asimov’s and “The Water That Falls on You from Nowhere” in February at tor.com. In addition, I am eligible for the Campbell “Not a Hugo!” Award (2nd year of eligibility).

    My on-line bibliography has links to those two stories (as well as everything else I’ve published): http://johnchu.net/bibliography.html

    Thank you, John, for the space to plug my work.

  16. What a nice thing to do, John. You’re a mensch.

    The only thing I published this year was <iSold for Endless Rue, published by Forge Books (http://whatever.scalzi.com/2013/05/20/the-big-idea-madeleine-robins/), which is genre by courtesy: it’s a retelling of Rapunzel set in a straight historical 13th Century Salerno, site of the first European medical school. It has a genre feel to it, but I’m not certain it qualifies for the requirements of these listings. If not, feel free to pull this.


  17. Thanks, John!

    I’m Steven Schapansky, one of the three hosts of Radio Free Skaro, a popular Doctor Who podcast that is eligible for the Best Fancast award at the upcoming Hugos. It was the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who in 2013, and we’re pretty proud of the podcast episodes in which we, with special guests, discussed the different creative eras that made up the show in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s (Ep 383-393).

    You can find all of the episodes at http://www.radiofreeskaro.com. Thanks again!

  18. Here’s my eligible work from 2013:

    “The Wreck of the Mars Adventure” (novelette) in Old Mars, anthology edited by Gardner Dozois and George R. R. Martin, October 2013

    “Artist’s Retrospective” (short story) in Daily Science Fiction, website edited by Jonathan Laden and Michele Barasso, September 2013 (read it here: http://dailysciencefiction.com/hither-and-yon/magic-realism/david-d-levine/artists-retrospective)

    “Wavefronts of History and Memory” (short story) in Analog, magazine edited by Trevor Quachri, June 2013

    “Letter to the Editor” (short story) in The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination, anthology edited by John Joseph Adams, February 2013 (hear it here: http://talestoterrify.com/tales-to-terrify-show-no-65-joe-r-lansdale-david-d-levine/)

    “Letter to the Editor” is also available as a 15-minute video, which is eligible for Best Dramatic Presentation: http://youtu.be/NkOuPyILWx0

  19. Thank you for the space and the encouragement!

    I’m Catherine Krahe and I wrote Walking Home, a short story about family, grief, and aftermath. It was published in Daily Science Fiction back in January.

  20. Thanks, John!

    In 2013, I produced work that is eligible in the following categories:

    Best Editor (Short Form) (Apex Magazine, Glitter & Mayhem http://www.apexbookcompany.com/collections/all-books/products/glitter-mayhem/, Book of Apex vol. 4 http://www.apexbookcompany.com/collections/all-books/products/the-book-of-apex-vol-4/)
    Best Semiprozine (Apex Magazine) http://www.apex-magazine.com/ (I was the Editor-in-Chief for all of 2013)
    Best Fancast (Verity!) http://veritypodcast.wordpress.com/ A podcast with six smart women discussing Doctor Who. :-)

    Please note that I edited short fiction, and I encourage you to look at those writers’ works as well when nominating. <3

  21. I have been told by my very kind, very enthusiastic friends that my fantasy comic, A Stray in the Woods, is eligible for the Best Graphic Story Hugo, as both the digital and print editions were published in 2013. It’s a fantasy adventure/mystery starring a cat, and one of those very kind friends explained her reasons for wanting to nominate it here.

  22. Thank you for posting this topic, Mr. Scalzi. I have two (possibly three) pieces eligible for a short fantasy story award this year.

    “Whistler’s Grove,” currently up at Beneath Ceaseless Skies, issue #137.

    “The Gangs of Gnome Jersey,” also currently up. Fireside Magazine, issue # 8.

    My third story, “The Last Deduction,” in the inaugural issue of Phobos Magazine, is a Sherlock Holmes pastiche, and therefore may not qualify as fantasy in some competitions.

    So happy to see all the great work being done by visitors to your site!

  23. Hi John —

    Lois Bujold here.

    My one new work (for a certain value of “new”) in 2013 is SIDELINES: TALKS AND ESSAYS, an original e-book publication that would, I believe, be eligible for the Hugo ballot’s “Best Related Works” grab-bag category. It’s pretty much what it says on the tin; a collection of my last 3 decades of nonfiction occasional pieces.

    One can preview it through its sales pages’ “Look Inside” features, ferex, http://www.amazon.com/Sidelines-Essays-Lois-McMaster-Bujold-ebook/dp/B00BW5SW66/ref=pd_sim_kstore_3

    It is presently available in the Amazon Kindle, iTunes/iPad, and B&N’s Nook e-stores.

    Thanks for this nice thread, which was brought to my attention by an alert fan.

    bests, Lois.

  24. This is such a lovely thing for you to do, John. Thank you!

    My name’s Cassandra Rose Clarke, and I had two novels come out this year:

    The Mad Scientist’s Daughter, a science fiction story about a woman and a robot

    The Pirate’s Wish, a YA adventure fantasy about pirates and assassins and sequel to my 2012 book, The Assassin’s Curse

    I also had two novelettes come out this year, both companion pieces to The Assasin’s Curse/The Pirate’s Wish and both put out by Strange Chemistry:

    The Witch’s Betrayal and The Automaton’s Treasure

    Finally, I guess I technically made a fanzine this year, if you’re interested in such things. It’s called Modern Electric.

  25. I produced work in 2013 that is eligible in the following Hugo Award categories:

    Best Related Work- Queers Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the LGBTQ Fans Who Love It (co-edited with Sigrid Ellis, http://madnorwegian.com/697/books/new-books/queers-dig-time-lords-a-celebration-of-doctor-who-by-the-lgbtq-fans-who-love-it/)

    Best Editor (Short Form) (Apex Magazine Managing Editor, Queers Dig Time Lords co-editor, Glitter & Mayhem co-editor with John Klima & Lynne M. Thomas, http://www.apexbookcompany.com/collections/all-books/products/glitter-mayhem/)

    Best Semiprozine- Apex Magazine (I was the Managing Editor under Editor-in-Chief Lynne M. Thomas and Publisher Jason Sizemore, http://www.apex-magazine.com/)

    Thank you, John! :-)

  26. Electric Velocipede ceased publication in 2013 and had its final two issues come out that year. I was also co-editor with Lynne M. Thomas and Michael Damian Thomas of the speculative night club anthology Glitter & Mayhem.

    This makes me eligible for the following Hugo Awards: Best Editor (Short Form), Electric Velocipede is eligible for Best Semiprozine, and of course all the works of fiction (primarily short stories) are eligible in their respective categories. I am also eligible for the World Fantasy Award in the Special Award Nonprofessional category for Electric Velocipede, with Glitter & Mayhem being eligible for Best Anthology and of course all the fiction eligible for their respective short fiction categories.

    Here are some handy links to my work from 2013:

    Electric Velocipede 26

    Electric Velocipede 27

    Glitter & Mayhem

  27. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I have two eligible titles. The first is my novella, Less Than Perfect, published in October 2013. Short summary: Apocalypse, aliens and romance.

    The second is a speculative short story called Domestic Bliss. Published November 2013. Short summary: Harry arrives home one day to find his wife has been replaced by a robot. This story is free to read online.

  28. Hi, everyone! My novel DYING IS MY BUSINESS (which was featured in the Big Idea series right here on John’s blog!) was released on October 2013 from St. Martin’s Griffin and is eligible for Novel categories (but not First Novel).

    Additionally, my story “The Rest Is Noise” appeared in DARK FUSIONS, an anthology published by PS Publishing in November, edited by Lois H. Gresh. It is eligible for Novelette categories.

    Thanks, John, for this opportunity!

  29. Thanks, John!

    I had a few things out in 2013, but the one I’m sharing is a short story called “Stranger vs. the Malignant Malevolency.” It’s a humorous story about superheroes and cancer, inspired in part by Jay Lake (who may or may not make an appearance as an ex-superhero-turned-head-in-a-jar-and-therapist).

    It was published in Unidentified Funny Objects 2, and while the contract doesn’t let me share it online yet, I’d be happy to email a copy to anyone interested in award nomming.

    Just drop me a line at jchines -at- sff.net.

  30. This is awesome- thank you so much for doing this, John!

    I have two eligible short stories this year:

    “The Skin of My Teeth,” published in the anthology THOROUGHLY MODERN MONSTERS (Story Spring Publishing, October 2013)

    “Seeking Single Human Male, No Stakers,” published in the anthology THOROUGHLY MODERN MONSTERS (Story Spring Publishing, October 2013)

    Cheers to all, and best of luck!

  31. Hi, V.E. Schwab here!

    My supervillain revenge tale, VICIOUS, hit shelves in September with Tor, and has picked up a starred review from PW, and hit Amazon’s, PW’s, and Goodread’s “Best of 2013” lists. I was also lucky enough to blog here on your site!

    VICIOUS eligible for both the Hugo and Bram Stoker awards for Best Novel.

  32. Thanks so much for opening your space to other authors and editors, John.

    At Fictionvale, a new popular fiction short-story magazine, we hope to expose readers to new authors and genres they might not have considered before. Our first episode, Enter Fictionvale, has eleven stories under 5k words and includes the following stories. Discover more about Fictionvale at http://fictionvale.com/

    “Blind Date” by Richmond Weems – A guy and a girl and contract hit.
    “Broken Heart” by Kristin Dearborn – Every love has its limits.
    “Seersucker and Trouble” by Natalie Duvall – Microfiction with a sassy dame detective.
    “Thing in a Bucket” by Eric Esser – Medieval horror with a side of moral dilemma.
    “Measure of Fate” by Branden Linley – Impossible choices and their repercussions in a YA fantasy.
    “The Claw in Her Heart” by Renee Carter Hall – His sister’s fantasy world isn’t what it seems.
    “Snapshot” by Margaret Ethridge – Iconic images of romance are never equal to real love.
    “The Fire at Colney Pointe Insane Asylum” by Chris Daruns – His sacrifice was never known, except to a woman without a voice.
    Horishi Tom by C.R. Langille – A dance with the devil in the Old West
    Of Blessed Servitude by A. Merc Rustad – Left as an offering, an impossible escape.
    Centipede by Colin Heintze – Chained together, they fight as one.

  33. I was fortunate enough to make my first! pro! fiction! sale! just this past November. My story’s called “Yuca and Dominoes,” and it’s a bit of cross-cultural magic realism, if that sounds at all like your thing. You can read it here at Strange Horizons, or you can listen to the podcast here (worth it just to listen to Anaea Lay’s hysterical rendering of a drunk Cuban-American girl).

    My story is eligible in the short story categories for Hugo and Nebula. I’m also in my first year of eligibility for the Campbell, and I believe my story is eligible for the Carl Brandon awards–both the Parallax and Kindred. But there’s a lot of great stories out there, so if you read it and decide it’s not one you feel like nominating, I’d just be grateful to have people read it and maybe comment on it or FB like it or share it around. (Honestly–I don’t really expect to win any awards, but I’m just desperate to know that I didn’t send my story out into a vacuum!)

    Thanks, John, for throwing your bandwidth open for this!

    -José Iriarte

  34. My story “Newton’s Method” in TALES OF EVE, from Fox Spirit Press. is eligible for short story, (It is unfortunately the only story I published in 2013)


    I am also eligible for Best Fan Writer!

    I write reviews (SF Signal, Functional Nerds, Skiffy and Fanty, my own blog), do interviews (on SF Signal and Skiffy and Fanty) write columns (Roll Perception Plus Awareness, Mining the Genre Asteroid) and conduct SF Signal Mind Melds.




    The Skiffy and Fanty Podcast, of which I am a part, is eligible for Best Podcast:


    The SF Signal Podcast, of which I am an occasional panel member, is also eligible for Best Podcast:


    Thanks, John!

  35. John Picacio here.

    For Hugo Award / Best Related Work consideration:

    The 2014 John Picacio Calendar (Lone Boy) — wherein I take twelve icons of the classic Mexican game of chance called Loteria, and re-invent them via sf/f



    For Hugo Award / Best Professional Artist consideration:

    The aforementioned calendar, including these three works, which are also eligible for Chesley Award consideration for Best Product Illustration:

    ‘El Arpa’


    ‘La Luna’


    ‘El Paraguas’


    Plus these selected 2013 works, as part of my Hugo Best Pro Artist eligibility:

    ‘The Good Life’ / Magazine illustration for POPULAR SCIENCE, June 2013


    Cover art for Brenda Cooper’s THE DIAMOND DEEP (Pyr)


    Cover art for Thomas Taylor’s HAUNTERS (Scholastic)


    Cover art for the limited edition of Dan Simmons’ THE FALL OF HYPERION (Subterranean Press)



    Thanks for doing this, J!

  36. Three eligible works this year:

    Novelette: “The Blue Celeb” (fantasy/horror), appearing in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, January/February 2013.

    Short story: “The Final One Percent” (horror/dark fantasy), appearing in Blood Rites, ed. Marc Ciccarone (Blood Bound Books).

    Short story: “One Thing Leads to Your Mother” (SF), appearing in Unidentified Funny Objects 2, ed. Alex Shvartsman (UFO Publishing).

    None are available for public view online, but arrangements can be made for legitimate nominators; email to dwarzel at hotmail dot com.

  37. I have a story in the Martin/Dozois Old Mars antho called “The Ugly Duckling” that I’m rather proud of. I tried to capture the mood of Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles.

    I also self-published two collections of my short stories in 2013: 9 Tales of Henghis Hapthorn and The Meaning of Luff and Other Stories. If someone wanted to nominate them in the best collections category, I would be most appreciative.

  38. * my 900 words short story “The Frog Prince”, #1 of Tales from the Ultraviolet Fairy Book, was accepted for publication in Daily Science Fiction (a SFWA Major Market), has been emailed to subscribers, and their check to me cleared the bank.

    * “Pair of Rogues”, also 900 words long, was also sold to Daily Science Fiction .[but I have not signed the contract yet, so they probably did not get it distributed by the end of 2013]

    * “Garrett Lisi’s Exceptionally Simple Theory of E8 Stardrive”, of 31 Mar 2010, 33 pages, approx, 7,100 words, sold to: Misque Press, for their September or October 2013 anthology “Space Jockeys.”

    * 1,800 words short story ‘The Dog and the Sparrow’, #14 in my Tales From the Ultraviolet Fairy, appears in Issue 1 of Black Wire Literary Magazine, now available via Facebook…

    I have candidates for Rhysling Award, but that’s another set of works. I found out too late that posting on SFPA’s Facebook site makes such a posted poem ineligible for Rhysling, which narrows my list. I got in the back door of the Nebula Awards Anthology years ago with a Rhysling winner.

    Now, to find a literary agent who will sell some of the 14 novels and book-length collection Tales from the Ultraviolet Fairy Book that I’ve written in the past 4 years…

  39. Thanks John.

    My novel ‘Queen of Nowhere’ is post-cyberpunk space opera, published by Gollancz.

    Only one short story out this year, ‘Not the Territory’ which appeared in The Alchemy Press Book of Urban Mythic.

  40. As the managing editor of Fiction Vortex, I’d like to bring attention to some of our best short stories from 2013.

  46. Our show “Fast Forward:Contemporary Science Fiction” is eligible for the Fancast Hugo category.

    The show was started in 1989 and has run ever since. We have completed 250 episodes and consider ourselves the longest running SF interview show on TV!

    You can see some of our more recent interviews on our You Tube channel (including our interview with our host – John Scalzi)


  47. Thank you, John!

    My debut novel Eel River came out in December. And was featured here in the Big Idea: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2013/12/30/the-big-idea-shannon-page/

    Also, I edited an anthology, Witches, Stitches & Bitches, within which was an AMAZING short story by Gabrielle Harbowy, “Blood Magic”. If you have a kindle, it’s practically free:

  48. As always, thanks for the space and opportunity, John!

    My debut novel, THE DAEDALUS INCIDENT, is a SF/F mashup of historical fantasy, hard SF and space opera, with a pinch of streampunk without the steam. It was a best of 2013 pick by both Library Journal and Buzzfeed. It’s my first novel, so I’m Campbell and “first novel” eligible as well.

    Also, THE GRAVITY OF THE AFFAIR is a 2013 self-published novella set in the same world as THE DAEDALUS INCIDENT. It’s a historical fantasy focusing on Horatio Nelson’s first command…on Ganymede.

    Thanks for the consideration, folks!

  49. After a long and frustrating career interregnum, my third novel, The Republic of Thieves (adult fantasy), finally hit shelves in October of 2013 and anybody who wants to nominate it for anything is a-okay in my book.

    Thanks, John. You’re not the horrible person your cat tells us you are!

    Thanks again!

  51. I feel terribly intimidated by everyone else’s accomplishments, but hey. Gotta buy the lottery ticket to have even a sniff of a chance, right? Thank you for the opportunity!

    I have a Science Fiction Novellette, “Blackest Before the Dawn,” in the What Happens Next anthology (Fred Patten, ed.). It was published in July, 2013.

    (I also have a Fantasy Short Story, Plague, self-published in ebook form in January 2013. …with the Names And Glossary appendix, it becomes a Novellette, but the story itself is, I believe, under 7,500 words.)

    And to reverse the usual definition of “translation,” the Russian translation of my “Legend of the Morning Star” was self-published in ebook form in April, 2013.)

  52. A Double-Double and fries for posting this thread, John. Also: dude, there is so much good stuff here to consume, it’s killing me.

    I wrote “Oh Give Me A Home,” a novelette about family, farming, and miniaturized bison that was published in the July/August 2013 issue of Fantasy and Science Fiction. It’ll also appear in the 2014 Campbellian Anthology (which should be out sometime in mid-January, and everyone else who’s eligible should submit their stuff!) because I’m now eligible for the Campbell. Thank you for your consideration.

  53. I have two pieces that are eligible for 2013 awards. Free links to both pieces are available on the Nebula suggested reading list.
    1. Ardent Forest, a novelette, published as a book by Book View Cafe in October, 2013
    2. Revision, a short story, published in the anthology Mad Science Cafe edited by Deborah Ross and Pati Nagle and released in November 2013 by Book View Cafe.
    Nancy Jane Moore

  54. I’m Rosemary Claire Smith. After a ten year hiatus, I’ve returned to writing SF and fantasy. My dinosaur short story, “Not with a Bang” was published in the July/August issue of Analog.

    Thanks John.

  55. [Deleted because this is a thread for the creators to promote themselves, not anyone else. No worries, Lurkertype: I’ll be doing a fan suggestion thread later on in the year – JS]

  56. Thank you John!

    First, something a little different: We’d like to announce that Clarkesworld Magazine is no longer eligible for Best Semiprozine. Seriously. We’re out.

    I am, however, eligible to be nominated (again) for Best Editor Short Form for my work on Clarkesworld.

    A complete list of our award-eligible fiction (with appropriate categories) can be found on my website: http://neil-clarke.com/2014-awards-eligibility-hugo-nebula/

  57. John, thanks for the showcase.

    Much of my fiction involves light, humorous tales about a stage hypnotist wandering the galaxy as he trances aliens, samples bizarre cuisine, and romps around with a creature that can eat anything and farts oxygen.

    Last year I had the pleasure of seeing a novella in this series receive a Nebula nomination. I was so chuffed, I wrote another novella. That one, “Trial of the Century,” was recently published in the anthology World Jumping from Hadley Rille Books, and is eligible for your consideration.

    The novella explores that most basic of relationships, the bond that exists between a hypnotist and his alien animal companion, as The Amazing Conroy goes on trial to save his buffalo dog before Reggie explodes.

    So ask yourself, what would you do to save your best friend?

    At the end of my first novel, Buffalito Destiny, Conroy had lost his fortune and fled Earth. Reggie, his buffalito, had survived diving into a volcano, but slipped into a coma.

    Now Reggie is dying and the buffalito’s internal nuclear furnace is growing unstable. Conroy’s only hope lies with the Arconi, the aliens he ripped off to create his empire. Their help comes with a price: he has to go on trial for his crimes, against people who can telepathically tell when he’s lying. Conroy knows he’s guilty, but Reggie must be saved!

    Complimentary copies of this novella in ePub, mobi, and PDF formats can be obtained by clicking this link: http://j.mp/CenturyTrial

  58. Thanks for this, John. So much stuff can fall through the cracks otherwise. Right, let’s see, there was:

    “The Death of Me” (7850 words), published by Tor.Com in September. http://www.tor.com/stories/2013/09/the-death-of-me

    “Johannes Cabal: The Fear Institute” (fantasy novel) published by Thomas Dunne Books in October. This one’s complicated by it being the belated US publication. It came out in the UK in 2011. http://us.macmillan.com/johannescabalthefearinstitute/JonathanHoward

    “Katya’s War” (YA SF novel) published in November. http://strangechemistrybooks.com/books/katyas-war-by-jonathan-l-howard/

  59. I am awestruck by the volume and enthusiasm of creators in this thread. What a great idea.

    I’m Nate Taylor and this year I illustrated Patrick Rothfuss’ “The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle: the Dark of Deep Below” from Subterranean Press.

    I’m really hoping it gets considered for the Best Graphic Story Hugo category.

    Thanks for looking, and you can look more here:

  60. Here are my offerings:

    The Children of Kings (with Marion Zimmer Bradley), DAW, 3/13
    Collaborators (as Deborah Wheeler), Dragon Moon Press, 5/13
    The Seven-Petaled Shield, DAW, 6/13
    Shannivar, DAW, 12/13

    “Among Friends” (Quakers, the Underground Railroad, and a slave-catching automaton), F & SF (3-4/13)

    Short story:
    “The Hero of Abarxia”, When The Hero Comes Home 2, ed. G. Harbowy, Dragon Moon Press
    “Pearl of Tears,” Sword & Sorceress 28, ed. E. Waters, MZB Literary Works Trust

  61. Thank you for the opportunity to plug, John. This is incredibly generous of you!

    I have two short stories that I believe are eligible. They are part of the anthology THOROUGHLY MODERN MONSTERS (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thoroughly-Modern-Monsters-J-L-Aldis-ebook/dp/B00FJGLPMM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388774087&sr=8-1&keywords=thoroughly+modern+monsters+paperback), which was published on September 29th, 2013.

    The first is “Morrigan Mine” about a woman whose life is changed forever when she starts answering the call of a rather persistent messenger.

    The second, a very different piece, is “Provender,” in which a quite unpleasant fellow with a very large chip on his shoulder tries to escape his pursuers by heading for a remote cabin in the woods. He doesn’t quite make it, but he does finally manage to make himself useful.

    It was a delight to tackle a couple of monsters in contemporary settings—and to join some richly fascinating company as part of a fascinating collection of stories.

  62. Debra and I have two short stories out this year and eligible for Hugo & Nebula:

    “The Clockwork Trollop” by Debra Doyle and James D. Macdonald (a steampunk eroto-horror story) in Beneath Ceaseless Skies Issue #120, 2 May 2013

    Podcast (read by T. D. Edge):


    “According to the Rule” by Debra Doyle and James D. Macdonald (or, Monks in Spaaaaace!) in Impossible Futures edited by Judith K. Dial and Thomas Easton, Pink Narcissus Press, August, 2013.

    Full text is available for SFWA members here: http://www.sfwa.org/forum/index.php?/topic/6107-doyle-debra-and-macdonald-james-d-according-to-the-rule/ Otherwise, your local bookstore or library is your friend.

    See: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18214099-impossible-futures

  63. Hi!

    This year is the first time I have published something eligible for a Nebula, Andre Norton or Hugo award. My partner and I are the authors of the game lore for Dragons and Titans, a fantasy game on the internet, and as a part of that effort we wrote and published Dragons and Titans: Champions’ Call, a YA fantasy, published on Amazon.

    This Novel is eligible for the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Andre Norton awards, as far as I can tell. Thanks!

    You can see it here: http://www.amazon.com/Dragons-Titans-Champions-Chris-Holtorf-ebook/dp/B00DH2K2AG and you may visit our page here: http://www.skywardstar.com

  64. I had three stories published in 2013.

    “Solidarity,” F&SF March/April. Novelette. This is a seastead story, with the same setting and characters as “Liberty’s Daughter” and “High Stakes” (which were published in F&SF in May/June 2012 and Nov/Dec 2012.)

    “The Wall,” Asimov’s April/May. Short story about a college student in 1989 who meets her future self, when she shows up to try to talk herself into going to see the fall of the Berlin Wall.

    Bits, Clarkesworld, October. Short story. (Also available as an audio work via the same link.) This one is about penises.

    Thank you, John!

  65. Thanks, John!

    I published 6 stories and a novelette in 2013. Some of the stories are horror, some are fantasy, one floats in a science fiction edgeground. Also I co-edited a YA monster anthology with Neil Gaiman (UNNATURAL CREATURES), which has some new stories in it! Which are also eligible! Yip!

    I wrote a post about said items, here, with links and synopses:


    Thanks, everyone!

  66. Thanks, John!

    I had three stories published this year, but the one I’d like to recommend is a short story:

    “The History of Soul 2065”
    Clockwork Phoenix 4

    It’s a print publication, so there’s no online version, but if you’re a SFWA member, you can get a copy at the SFWA forum here.

  67. Thanks, John!

    I have two, count ’em, TWO, new YA works in the pipleine, one of them concluding a series the other starting a new one – but both are due out in 2014, so watch this space next year, i guess. But in the meantime here’s an unusual short story that appeared in the correct time period – you can read it here: http://www.unlikely-story.com/stories/go-through-by-alma-alexander/ – if this is in any way your cup of tea feel free to put it forward for anything for which a short story is eligible…

  68. My novel with Skyler White, The Incrementalists, was released in 2013, as was my short story “Fireworks in the Rain” (tor.com). Thanks for the space to plug them.

  69. Hi John,
    Thanks for doing this!
    I’d like to put forward my novelette “In Joy, Knowing the Abyss Behind,” published in two parts in Strange Horizons in July.
    Part 1: http://www.strangehorizons.com/2013/20130701/injoy-f.shtml and
    Part 2: http://www.strangehorizons.com/2013/20130708/injoy-f.shtml

    Part 2: http://www.strangehorizons.com/2013/20130708/xpodcast-f.shtml

    I’m in my second year of eligibility for the Campbell.

    Sarah Pinsker

  70. Thanks, John, for doing this.

    Although I have several eligible pieces this year, the one I’m singling out is the short story “Selected Program Notes from the Retrospective Exhibition of Theresa Rosenberg Latimer”, which appeared in Mike Allen’s Clockwork Phoenix 4 in July. This story has received much more praise from more people than my stories usually do. :)

    Clockwork Phoenix 4 may be obtained in its entirety here: http://www.clockworkphoenix.com/

    The story is temporarily available for free on the Mythic Delirium Web Site, here: http://mythicdelirium.com/?page_id=1137

    It also appeared on Podcastle in an excellent reading by Peter Wood, which can be found here: http://podcastle.org/2013/07/18/podcastle-269-selected-program-notes-from-the-retrospective-exhibition-of-theresa-rosenberg-latimer/

  71. I have a novelette (By Means of Clockwork Selection) and a bunch of short stories in my collection (Rainbow Lights). The link is my end-of-year roundup, where you can skip the waffle (unless you want to know how long I can hold my breath) and look at the lists… it has which of the collection stories are new this year and my most popular blog posts (for the fan writer category). http://blog.polenthblake.com/2013/12/end-of-2013-year-of-whale.html

    I also produced my book covers myself, as well as some other speculative arty things like my green hand photos. So that makes me a fan artist. http://polenthblake.deviantart.com/

  76. Thanks for offering a space, John.

    All my 2013 publications are short stories. In order of my guess at their appeal, they are:

    *”The Pilgrim and the Angel” in McSweeney’s Quarterly 45, which will be reprinted in Strahan’s Best of the Year 8. http://www.amazon.com/McSweeneys-Issue-Mcsweeneys-Quarterly-Concern/dp/1938073630

    “Ilse, Who Saw Clearly” in Apex. http://www.apex-magazine.com/issue-48-may-2013/

  77. I supposed I can mention that I’m eligible for fan writer–I write a lot about SF/F on my blog, The Radish.

    I’ve also acquired a few books for Masque Books, all of which are eligible in the novel category: Ascension by Jacqueline Koyanagi, The Rings of Anubis duology (2 books, 64k each) by E. Catherine Tobler, and Crowflight by Sunny Moraine.

  78. So cool of you to do this. :)

    My YA science fantasy novel, SPARK, was published in Dec. 2013 and is eligible and looking for a hookup with readers who love the idea of high-tech computer gaming meeting the Realm of Faerie.


    I also have a short urban fantasy story, MUSIC’S PRICE, published in Fiction River: Hex in the City 12/13.


  79. Thank you for doing this! I’ve got several stories out in 2013, but of those online I’d like to single out my queer military space opera ‘Silent Bridge, Pale Cascade’ in Clarkesworld, eligible for Best Short Story.

    Otherwise people have quite liked ‘The Bees Her Heart, the Hive Her Belly’, a magic-realist cyberpunk story which appeared in Clockwork Phoenix 4 edited by Mike Allen. SFWA members can access this story from the forums.

    I’m also in my first year of Campbell Award for Best New Writer eligibility.

  80. Wow. Many of my favorite authors have already posted here. An impressive bunch!

    For the 2013 Hugo and Nebula short story category I published two flash-length pieces in F&SF:
    — Un Opera nello Spazio (A Space Opera)
    — Half a Conversation, Overheard While Inside an Enormous Sentient Slug.

    I’m also in my second year of eligibility for the Campbell award. Find out more at oliverbuckram.com.

  81. Thanks for the opportunity and also for the suggestions. I’m a Loncon member, so I can nominate this year.

    If someone wants to nominate me, I blog about SFF quite a bit and therefore am eligible for best fanwriter. Click on my name and you should get to my blog.

    I also have some self-published short fiction which is eligible, namely Mercy Mission for best novella, The Hybrids for best novelette, and both Acacia Crescent and Old Mommark’s Tale for best short story.

  82. As everyone else has already said, thanks, John!

    I’ve got two stories eligible for Best Short Story in both the Hugo and Nebula categories: “The Caretaker of Mire,” in the TRIUMPH OVER TRAGEDY anthology edited by R.T. Kaelin (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16138623-triumph-over-tragedy), and “Sanction,” in the TIME TRAVELED TALES anthology edited by Jean Rabe (http://www.silenceinthelibrarypublishing.com/time-traveled-tales-volume-1/). I also have a podcast eligible in the Hugo’s Best Fancast category: Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans, which I co-host with fellow speculative fiction author Brad Beaulieu. You can find it at http://www.speculatesf.com.

    Thanks again!

  84. This may be snippable, but … I edited a three-volume set of trade paperbacks collecting for the first time all the late Algis Budrys’s “Books” columns for F&SF. The first appeared in 2012; the second and third, titled Benchmarks Revisited and Benchmarks Concluded (the titles echo Budrys’s 1985 collection Benchmarks: Galaxy Bookshelf, but there is no overlap) were published in mid-2013 and are eligible for the current Best Related Work Hugo. More information at http://ae.ansible.co.uk/

  85. My Gaelic SF novel, Air Cuan Dubh Drilseach, should be eligible for best novel in the Hugo awards, which if I understand the rules, does accept entries in languages other than English.
    Thank you very much for providing this forum!

  86. Thank you for doing this, John. I had two novels published in 2013:

    The Crown Tower which was the first book in my Riyria Chronicles series. It was published by Orbit in August 2013.

    The Rose and the Thorn was the second book in that same series also published by Orbit but this one in September 2013.

    I also have a short story: The Jester (7,200 words) that was published in Shawn Speakman’s Unfettered Anthology.

  87. Thank you so much for the opportunity, John!

    In December, I released a science-fiction novel titled Biotech Legacy: Long Fall, the sequel to 2010’s Stars Rain Down. The series describes the brutal invasion of Earth by a diverse alien coalition and the resulting rise of living technology, while two unlikely heroes (an astronomer and a humanitarian aid worker) attempt to find a lasting peace.

    Both books are Creative Commons licensed, and are available on a pay-what-you-want basis. You can find them at: http://oktopods.wordpress.com/ebook-store/

  88. My short story “Blunt Force Trauma Delivered by Spouse” is in the Machine of Death Anthology, This is How You Die, July 2013. I recommend the entire anthology for awards that touch on the speculative (stories in the anthology touch many genres comedy, science fiction, fantasy, steampunk and horror) http://www.machineofdeath.net/tihyd/

    “Mermaid’s Hook” came out in Apex Magazine, fantasy/first contact short story. It’s been positively reviewed in IO9 http://www.apex-magazine.com/mermaids-hook/

    “Shadow Play” came out in Daily Science Fiction, fantasy is probably the best category for this spec fic story http://dailysciencefiction.com/fantasy/fantasy/liz-argall/shadow-play

  89. Short Stories

    “Ebony Paradox” (Punchnels Magazine – http://www.punchnels.com/fiction/ebony-paradox/) – a “lost” tale from my Knights of Breton Court universe

    “Voice of the Martyr” Beyond the Sun (Fairwood Press) – in a universe where the church and the military are now united, which means our soldiers are the new missionaries.

    “The Electric Spanking of the War Babies” Glitter and Mayhem (Apex Books) – The P-Funk universe comes alive.

    “Cerulean Memories” The Book of the Dead (Jurassic-London) – one of my favorite stories I’ve written. A story of grief, an urban legend, and a mummy.

    “A Soldier’s Story” Vampires Don’t Sparkle (Seventh Star Press) – Sometimes vampires aren’t the worst monster in the night.

    “Read Me Up” What Fates Impose (Alliteration Ink) – Family drama meets an obeah prophecy.

    “Awaiting Redemption” Eulogies II (HW Press) and can be heard on Pseudopod (http://pseudopod.org/2013/08/16/pseudopod-347-flash-on-the-borderlands-xvi-trial-discipline/) – It doesn’t matter what the religion, sometimes folks miss the point of their own worship.


    “Steppin’ Razor” Asimov’s SF Magazine – Steampunk, alternate history Jamaica, Rastafarians, the clone of Haille Selassie.


    I Can Transform You (Apex Books) – “Mac Peterson left the employ of LG Security Forces and now cobbles together a life in the shadows of the great towers, filling policing needs for people too unimportant for the professional corp-national security to care about. His ex-wife, Kiersten, stayed behind on the Security Forces, working undercover. When she turns up dead alongside one of the tower jumpers, Mac pairs up with Ade Walters, a cyborg officer, to uncover who would try to hide Kiersten’s death among the suicides. Searching for the murderer of one of their own, Mac and Ade discover plans to transform the Earth and its inhabitants…plans that only started with the great upheaval and The Trying Times.”

  90. “Perihelion Science Fiction” is an online magazine with an emphasis on “hard” science fiction. It was reborn in the Fall of 2012, after nearly a 40 year hiatus, having been established in the late 1960s as a print magazine. “Perihelion” publishes short stories, articles, reviews, and comics. Recent authors have included Ken Liu, Joseph Green, Aliya Whiteley, Rebecca Birch, and Michael Hodges. We pay one cent per word for stories, and up to $60 for cover art and comic strips. “Perihelion” is monthly. It is edited by Sam Bellotto Jr., a published author and retired career magazine editor. The current issue and the past four issues can always be found at http://www.PerihelionSF.com.

  91. I’ve been writing and illustrating my self-published indie comic series The UNFORGIVEN for a couple years now, and I published several eligible works in 2013!

I’m hoping for a consideration of Best Professional Artist or Best Graphic Story.

    Both eligible for Hugo and Nebula.

    I’m also eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.

    Thanks ya’ll

  94. Having read some of the others commenting here I’m sure they’ve got much more chance of success than me, however, you’ve got to be in it to have a chance…

    So I (self) published three works in 2013, although two of them are serial parts of a longer piece that isn’t yet finished. The other is a near future military science fiction novelette.

    ‘Crisis Point’ is available from the big river and also from smashwords.


  95. My name is Caspian Gray, and I’m a (usually dark) fantasy author. This year I published three eligible pieces, all of which fall into the “short story” category:

    “Centipede Heartbeat” in Nightmare Magazine

    “Flock” in Kaleidotrope

    “Summer Girls” in Black Static #35

    Many thanks to anyone who takes a look!

  96. Alas, my fanzine Yipe! was on hiatus last year, but I did contribute to other ‘zines, including a regular column in the Virtual Costumer

  97. And, darn it, I did forget one fan writing duo that I really should not have, because I have only published one of their articles in print in Bull Spec, but I’ve had quite a few reviews of theirs at bullspec.com. They are Gerald and Angela Blackwell, and they’ve been doing some great fan coverage for me as “The Exploding Spaceship”:


  98. Thank you for this opportunity! :)

    My novel, “The Prophecy of Trivine”, co-authored with two of my friends, was published just a month ago!

    It’s a sci-fi/fantasy adventure novel set in a mystical forest in the foothills of the Himalayas, where three young men, a scientist, a computer hacker and an artist seek refuge, gripped by their life’s own dreams and demons. As they explore the dark and paranormal nature of the forest, they find themselves inextricably connected to an ancient Prophecy, foretold millions of years ago, a prophecy that will make you question the origin of life and the fate of humanity!

    Thank you for doing this, John!

  104. Thanks for the opportunity, John.

    I’m Alex Hughes, and my Mindspace Investigations novel _Sharp_ came out April 2013 from Roc. I’d be honored to be considered.

    Good luck to all!

  105. Thanks very much for the opportunity, John! Good lord, what a lot of amazing stuff here. Gotta step up my reading game.

    I’m happy to be in my first year of Campbell eligibility with my first novel, THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI, which is also eligible for the Hugo and the Nebula. It’s about a female golem and a male jinni who unexpectedly find themselves in 1899 New York City, and have to learn to pass as human.

    My debut comic fantasy novella ‘How To Be Dead’ was published by Aim For The Head Books in December 2013.

    The undead are administrative errors. It’s up to Death and his office staff to protect humanity by fighting ghosts, zombies, vampires and medium-sized apocalypses.

    After a nice cup of tea.

    You can find out more at http://www.howtobedead.com/

    Or read the really rather lovely reviews at http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00H17V7OS

    All the best

    Dave Turner

  108. Thank you, John.

    It took me 11 years to finish my science fiction graphic novel, “ZED: A Cosmic Tale”, and this year it was finally published by Image Comics. It is eligible in the graphic novel category. You can find out a bit more about the book at this link: http://www.ZEDcomics.com

  109. INFINITY KEY was published by Candlemark & Gleam last year. It is a contemporary fantasy novel. I’d love for it to be nominated for things like Best Novel. Or a Cambell Award, if the eligibility opens up to small presses that don’t meet SFWA’s criteria.

  110. Thank you, John. You’re a gent.
    My name is Gareth L Powell. My SF novel, ACK-ACK MACAQUE was published in January 2013, and is therefore eligible for a number of awards.

    The Guardian called it “An explosive narrative with brilliant cliffhangers”.

    I don’t expect it to win anything, but it would be great to make it onto a shortlist somewhere.
    Find out more about the book, including links to buy, here:


    Many thanks.

  111. Thanks for the space, and for enough company to not feel totally awkward doing this (-:

    My novelette “Hotel” was in the January 2013 issue of Asimov’s, and my short story “Lanternfish in the Overworld” was in the anthology FISH from Dagan Books. I hope people find them worthy of their consideration.

    *crawls back under self-promo-phobic rock*

  112. Thank you for this opportunity to put my works in front of an audience. I have 5 full-length novels eligible for Hugo or Nebula awards. All were published by Sacred Life Publishers.

    Science Fiction:
    The Second Predaxian War (pub. Feb. 2013)
    The Hive (pub. Mar. 2013)
    Tears of Gallia (pub. Jun. 2013)

    Heartstone: Sentinels of Far Sun (pub. Apr. 2013)
    Heartstone: The Time Walker (pub. Oct. 2013)

  113. Beneath Ceaseless Skies, the World Fantasy Award-winning online magazine that I edit, published 55 stories and novelettes in 2013, all of which are eligible for the Hugo and Nebulas. They, and their exact categories, are listed & linked here:


    There’s also a link to our BCS Authors Elsewhere posts, where we point out fiction that our authors have appearing in other magazines.

    BCS itself is eligible for the Hugo for Best Semiprozine, where we were a finalist last year.

    Thanks for considering us and our fiction!

  114. Thank you, John! For your consideration in the Hugo Novel category:

    My novel ‘Strangelets with a Side of Grilled Spam: Season One’ was published on July 11, 2013. NYT Bestseller Kevin J. Anderson, described it as “Edgy and entertaining!”

    Pursued by packs of deadly ‘steelies’, Lieutenant Shane MacWilliams and his Humvee crew journey through an America shattered by an alien invasion.

    Things look grim…until MacWilliams comes across something that could turn the tide. It falls to him and his crew to get the word out across a land choked with post-apocalyptic wreckage and teeming with deadly alien monsters. Their journey is blocked by steelie hunter-killers, vision-shrouding sand storms, and nightmare plains turned to radioactive slag by nuclear fallout.

    And at the end looms their final confrontation with a horde of aliens set to wipe out the human species!

    For more info on Strangelets, please see the following link: http://tinyurl.com/strangelets-s1

  115. In the rare novella category, _The Stars Change_ is eligible. It’s set on a South Asian-settled university planet, on the eve of the first interstellar war. It’s been reviewed…

    …at Tor.com: http://www.tor.com/blogs/2013/11/book-review-the-stars-change-mary-anne-mohanraj-jack-kotz

    …and at Ideomancer: http://www.ideomancer.com/?p=2687

    Your best introduction to it is in the Big Idea post here on John’s blog:

    And this is the first paragraph:

    “This is the world. This is the world he has come to destroy, a jewel of a world in the crown of the galaxy. The locals call it Kriti, which means creation. From his ship high above, he sees it all from the cabin windows. Charted Space, traced in lights against the midnight sky, worlds variously bright and dim and invisible, but there. There today, but not tomorrow. Some of those lights will die in what is to come; he has been promised that. Promised by quiet men in velvet-dressed rooms. There would be storms, there would be fire. The sturdy central core, Old Earth and its six daughters, might hold inviolate, at first. But the planets on the fringe, where alien, humod, and human mixed, where like rubbed up against unlike on a daily basis — those worlds were ripe for destruction, ready for the cleansing fire.”


  116. In the Short Story category, Worlds Less Traveled. Less than 3,000 words. It was published at Perihelion SF in July 2013. It’s presently available here: http://wp.me/P2kEkJ-oW.

    Please enjoy the story. It can be appreciated on several levels. On its face it is the story of an Earth attorney at an off world deposition. This attorney has more than minor problems. The story begins:

    My anti-psychotic field shifts to low-power mode. Sparkling clarity rushes in.

    On Brumal, lightyears from Earth, I activate my Pocket Paralegal, Penelope. Her soft voice resonates in my ear. “Yes Mr. Maynard?”

    I respond sub-audibly. “The McLeary generator is failing. Please diagnose it.”

    I wait, embracing the flood of awareness I know cannot last.

    You’ll form your own opinion. For the most part, I think the story is fun and worth considering. Thank you, John, for opening this forum.

    John Conway

    Right, so Fade to Black (and sequels, Before the Fall and Last to Rise, all from Orbit in 2013) eligible for novel and the Campbell. Excerpt will be available in the packet.

  121. I’m a little late to the party, but here goes, and thanks for the opportunity, John.

    My first novel Pantomime is eligible for the Hugo and Nebulas, I believe, and I’m eligible for the Campbell.

    Pantomime has so far also been nominated for the following:

    2014 Cybils finalist – YA Speculative Fiction
    2014 Catalyst longlist (decided by teens in North Lanarkshire)
    2014 NE Teen Book Award Shortlist (decided by teens in NE England)

    The sequel, Shadowplay, was just released last week as well to favourable reviews.

    There’s my horn blowing over!

  122. I’m not that comfortable blowing my own here, but apparently there’s some unsolicited interest in nominating my story “Radio Free Future,” for the short-fiction Hugo award, The story appeared in the anthology “Fiction River 3, Time Streams,” edited by Dean Wesley Smith. I’m making it available to read free on-line.

    I ask that you don’t redistribute the story, but feel free to share the link where ever you may feel is appropriate.


  123. Thanks for this opportunity, John. I’d like to suggest Porcelain: A Gothic Fairy Tale, by Benjamin Read and Chris Wildgoose (ISBN: 978-1-4474-6131-9), which is published by Improper Books for the Graphic Story categories.

    I edited the book, which has garnered considerable critical acclaim, and more details can be found here: http://www.improperbooks.com/projects/porcelain/

    Thanks, Matt Gibbs

  124. My name is RIck Kleffel, and it is possible that some might think my writing for The Agony Column (http://agonycolumn.com/) or my podcast (feed://bookotron.com/agony/indexes/tac_podcast.xml) would qualify.

    This year I podcast 83 interviews, most of them in-depth, one hour or more conversations with top-flight authors both in and out of genre fiction. This year included Cory Doctorow, Anne Rice, Christopher Rice, Joe Hill, Dan Simmons, Margaret Atwood and many more.

    I also podcast 60 episodes of Time to Read, a 4-minute NPR-style report that runs on NPR Affiliate KUSP during Morning Edition and All Things Considered, as well as in podcast form. These reports focus on one author seek to give the executive summary of the in-depth interview.

    I also podcast 16 news episodes, featuring long-form book review discussions with NPR’s Alan Cheuse, and recordings of events and readings.

    Here’s a link to my interview with Kate Atkinson about her novel Life After Life;


    Here’s my interview with Cory Doctorow:


    I also broadcast edited versions of the interviews in The Agony Column Literary Magazine, available from kusp.org and heard Sunday evenings from 6-7 PM Pacific Time on California’s central coast and via kusp.org/live

    Cory Doctorow always gets a very strong response for the site, as do most of the feature interviews do well. I was particularly pleased to see a strong international response to my conversation with German genre author Frank Schätzing.

    Enough self-puffery. Have a great year and awards season; I’ll be around Loncon.

  125. I’m ML Brennan and my urban fantasy novel Generation V was published by Roc in 2013. I’m eligible for the Campbell new author award and the book is eligible for a Hugo.

  126. Dark Matter Zine is eligible for FANZINE and FANCAST as the online magazine includes YouTube videos and MP3s of panels and interviews with SF/F authors and other celebs.
    Dark Matter Zine: http://www.darkmatterzine.com/

    Nalini Haynes (me) is eligible for FAN WRITER as I’m DMZ’s primary writer and editor although I have a growing band of merry minions (mentioned on the other thread).
    I’ve written lots of reviews and various articles but my writing on equity issues seems to have a unique flavour http://www.darkmatterzine.com/tag/equity-2/

    Thanks for the opportunity to post.

  127. It’s awesome gathering in this fannish world. Thank you thank you.

    I’m Valerie Estelle Frankel (vefrankel.com). Many of my nonfiction analysis/fun facts books on Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Hunger Games, Buffy, etc. are eligible for the Hugo for Best Related Work — I have ten out in 2013! I’ve made the two most popular free for the next while for any fans who would like to try them:

  137. Thanks for this opportunity, John!

    My third novel, *All the Shadows of the Rainbow,* was released in September, 2013. It’s eligible in the Hugo and World Fantasy Award Novel category.

    (By Light Unseen Media; http://bylightunseenmedia.com/atsotr.htm. Hardcover or paperback available to all retailers from Ingram, listed with IndieBound; ebook editions from all major ebook vendors or direct from publisher). A free sample of the first 52 pages is on the book detail page.

    This is the third in The Vampires of New England Series. This series is self-published, but to date has sold over 5000 copies and netted me over $25,000. The second book was reviewed by Publishers Weekly and Library Journal. The series was just included in Margot Adler’s list of 275 vampire books she found worth reading (out thousands in print), in *Vampires Are Us.* I humbly believe that *All the Shadows of the Rainbow* is the best yet in the series. I spent three years researching its time period (1955-1971).

    Anyone who would like a complimentary ebook copy for consideration, please get in touch with me. Lots and lots of information about The Vampires of New England Series can be found at http://inannaarthen.com/vones.htm

  138. Copy For A Day by Chrome Oxide is eligible for the short story award. As this is my first professional sale, I am also eligible for the John W. Campbell new writer award.

  139. A friend of mine just told me about this thread… I wish I’d known about it earlier!

    My novel, “Otters In Space 2: Jupiter, Deadly,” published by FurPlanet in January, 2013 is eligible for the novel category this year. There’s more information about it here: http://marylowd.com/OttersInSpace.html

    Also, I’m happy to provide a free e-copy through Smashwords to anyone who wants to consider nominating it. Just email me at eponymous(at)marylowd(dot)com to ask for one.

  140. Thanks for the opportunity to post here, John. I would like to put a couple of shows BBC America aired in 2013, BEING HUMAN (UK) and ORPHAN BLACK forward for Best Dramatic Presentation–Short Form.

    I have been really impressed by the writing for Being Human. Even though it had a complete turnover in cast, the new characters are every bit as well drawn and loveable (FWIW) as the originals. Some friends and I are particularly partial to “The Greater Good,” “Pie and Prejudice,” and the final two-parter “No Care, All Responsibility/Last Broadcast.”

    Orphan Black has been an amazing showcase for Tatiana Maslany, who takes on several different personalities as someone who has been cloned multiple times. I was rather surprised to see an episode, “Variations under Domestication,” nominated for the Best TV Episode category in the Edgars. There is definitely a lot of mystery in the show, but this clone experiment gone crazy is absolutely science fiction. My friends and I are not only looking forward to the second season starting next month, but we’re considering “Variations under Domestication” and “Unconscious Selection” for nomination. The entire first season could also be nominated in the long form category.

    BTW, if anyone is looking for ideas for the 1939 Retro Hugos, most everyone I know believes “War of the Worlds,” by Orson Welles, is a shoein for the DP-SF category, but “Mother Goose Goes Hollywood” and “Brave Little Tailor,” both animated shorts done by Disney, can be found on YouTube and are worth looking at too.

  141. On behalf of the cast f the Coode Street Podcast: http://jonathanstrahan.podbean.com/

    Gary K. Wolfe and Jonathan Strahan discuss awards, books, and industry issues in a conversational format, often they have guest authors such as Ursula le Guin, Steven Erikson, Ian McDonald, Kij Johnson, and Nicola Griffith (although not all at once…).

  142. For your consideration: the fanzine SPACE SQUID. (Not to be confused with Charlie Stross’ squid.)

    Space Squid is “your puny planet’s finest scifi, fantasy, experimental, and bizarro”. For the past nine years, we’ve published in paper, electrons, and clay tablet form (our infamous cuneiform issue, as blogged about here: http://www.wired.com/2010/08/dead-media-beat-sci-fi-mag-prints-on-clay-tablets/ ).

    Our past authors include Jay Lake, Chris Robeson, Jessica Reisman, Jennifer Pelland, Nicole Kimberling, and Bruce Sterling.

  143. Thank you for every other informative blog.
    The place else may I get that type of information written in such a perfect method?
    I’ve a project that I’m simply now working
    on, and I have been on the glance out for such info.
