Science Fiction Nominations Season

Hey, science fiction award nominators: nomination season is apparently once again upon us.

Nebula Awards (limited to members of SFWA) nomination period closes February 15: see

Hugo Award nominations are now open (they close March 16): see

The Locus Award poll and survey is now open (closes April 15): see

There are many other awards out there, I’m only point out three of the largest general sf awards. And the reason I’m pointing them out is that Fantastic Books published several books and stories that are eligible for your consideration.

  • Up the Rainbow by Susan Casper, edited by Gardner Dozois

  • The Doppler Effect and Other Stories by Allen Steele

I, and our authors, editors, and artists, thank you for your consideration and support.

And on a personal note, I was the author of three short stories published in 2017. I’m pushing the works I published, but if you’re interested in those I wrote, they were:

  • “The Ant and the Grasshoppers” (published in Daily Science Fiction, November 16, 2017)
  • “Godding About and Sleeping Around: Zeus’ Conversation with Tantalus” (published in the anthology TV Gods: Summer Programming!)
  • “The Necessary Enemy” (published in the anthology If We Had Known)
