Genre award awareness

Every year, John Scalzi posts a blog entry inviting authors who have published work in the preceding year that's eligible for nominations for the field's awards to announce and/or link to the work in question. As he says:

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.
This site doesn't get 50,000 visitors a day; more like 19,000 (peaking at 62,000 on a really good day, which this isn't). But if you want to tell everyone what you've published in 2013, feel free to do so here as well! I'm pretty sure our readerships form only partially overlapping sets ...

I am now going to plagiarize (with edits) John's eminently sensible rules for this kind of thread:

1. This thread is only for authors/artists/editors to promote their own works. If you're not an author/artist/editor promoting your own work, don't post on the thread. Any comment not by an author/artist/editor promoting his/her own work will be removed. 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, including Young Adult and fandom-related work. If you're not sure your particular work is eligible for awards this year, please check.

3. Authors/Artists/Editors: Feel free to list/link to your eligible works in the comments, or link to a blog post outlining your eligible works.

4. If you list your work, please mention the category you expect it to 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 delayed in moderation. Don't worry, I'll let them through in due course: but please make sure that before you post, you check all your links and formatting.

6. One post per creator/editor, please.

Let the self promotion begin. (I'll go first.)



I have two eligible items published in 2012:

1) NOVELLA – Equoid (published on, 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 ...


I'd appreciate consideration for these eligible items in 2013:

1) NOVEL - The Darwin Elevator (my debut, published by Del Rey in the US and Titan in the UK/AUS/NZ)

2) SHORT STORY - Wave of Infection (published on

Thank you!


Thanks Charlie!

My award-eligible work this year:

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:


Hi Charlie, thanks for doing this! My name is Erika Ensign, and I’m the technical producer and one of the cohosts of the Doctor Who podcast Verity!

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 Hugocategory.

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

We're also eligible for the 2014 Parsec Award for Best Speculative Fiction Fan or News Podcast (Specific).


Thanks for this, Charlie.

'Queen of Nowhere' is post-cyberpunk space opera, published by Gollancz, and is eligible in the novel category.

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


Last spring, I started a Twitter account for writing micro-sized S/F and fantasy stories. I usually post one or two stories per weekday, although I don’t have a fixed schedule. During 2013, I wrote and posted over 500 single-tweet stories.

That is O. Westin via MicroSFF – – which is eligible in the Fan Writer category.

(Copied from my entry in John's post, with corrected punctuation and grammar.)


Thanks for hosting this, Charlie!

I’m Ramez Naam, and I have two eligible works in 2013. I’m also eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.

NOVEL: My second novel, CRUX, is eligible in the Best Novel category.

SHORT STORY: My short story WATER is eligible in the Nebula Short Story category:

As this is my second year as a SF/F writer, I’m eligible for the Campbell Award, on the strength of the above short story, my second novel CRUX, and my first novel NEXUS


Thanks for doing this.

I'm eligible for the John W. Campbell award for best new writer.

My 2013 short stories:

1. "For Sale by Owner" in Daily Science Fiction.

2. "A Pair of Ragged Claws" in Black Treacle

3. "Word for Word" in Waylines

4. "Six Aspects of Cath Baduma" in Postscripts to Darkness, Issue 4

5. "The Dentist's Apprentice" in Spellbound, Winter 2013 issue (Giants)

(And a note to readers eligible to nominate for the Auroras: I'm Canadian.)



My story "The Language of True Things" in Beneath Ceaseless Skies just barely clears the minimum for the Novelette category at 7700 words:

Its a fantasy work about art, power and other things, and plays with some concepts sci-fi fans might find interesting also, like the gulf between language and reality.

-Nick Scorza


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 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):


Thanks, Charlie!

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-


Thank you for this opportunity, Charlie!

I had two novels published in 2013.

Necessary Evil, the third and final book of the 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. Both Kirkus and io9 included it on their best-of-2013 lists.

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

-Ian Tregillis


Hi Charlie!

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. It was also recently picked up by Ridley Scott's company for film.

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


Thanks for doing this!

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!)

-José Iriarte

Hello Charlie, and thank you so much for this opportunity!

I have two short stories that are eligible, both in the anthology THOROUGHLY MODERN MONSTERS edited by J.L. Aldis and published by Story Spring Publishing in October 2013 (

The stories are:

“Nothing But The Best”


“Learning Curve”

These are my first publications as a professional writer!


Thank you, Mister Stross, for offering this. You too are the duck's nuts.

I wrote a YA novel called THE TWELVE-FINGERED BOY from Lerner Books, released in February, 2013. It's about incarcerated juvenile delinquents. With superpowers.

Anywho, thanks again!


I feel terribly intimidated by everyone else's accomplishments, but one has to buy the lottery ticket to have even a sniff of a chance, right? Many thanks for the opportunity over here as well!

I have a Science Fiction Novellette, "Blackest Before the Dawn," in the small-press 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 Cast And Glossary appendix, it becomes a Novellette, but the story itself is, I believe, around 6000 words.

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


Thanks for posting this, Charlie!

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. Thanks for your consideration.


Thanks Charlie!

Here goes! 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 (these 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.

Thank you for doing this, Charlie. I published a novel called Exodus, Book One of the Fundamentalists in August, 2013. It's set in a post-apocalyptic technological dark age, with a serious look at religious fundamentalism in the United States. Details are here:


I've got a short story published in the first issue of Antoine Wilson & G.M. Quinte's Crony Magazine. I previously won a SOLAS Gold Award for funniest travel story.

"The Limits of Attraction":

Thanks for opportunity to share. And checking out Crony is a good idea, too! Hopefully it'll find it's audience and thrive.


Great Idea, Thanks! My novel is currently being considered for the Oregon Book Awards. It is a story of building a floating city in the ocean. It is set in real time. The central character is a sports shoe billionaire, Pike Knight, who feels remorse for being the world's biggest polluter. He realizes that he must make amends for his role in ruining the planet, and together with his Arch-Designer, design, build and develop a more perfect society and city at sea.
The Sci-Fi comes from various animals the use telepathy to reach out to the wayward human race and teach us to live in harmony with our planet.


Thanks for this!

Guard Cat


PS I'm actually feeling sorry for C.A.T. after what I put him through in this one, but then maybe not given what a pain in the neck that robo-cat can be!


"Touch of Tides", published in Crossed Genres in August, is eligible for Best Short Story in both the Hugos and Nebulas. It's hard sci-fi, about life on Europa. Read it here:

Thanks so much for this opportunity. :)


Thanks Charlie.

I have two eligible books.

The Lives of Tao (May 2013)
The Deaths of Tao (Nov 2013)

Both eligible for the Hugo and the Nebula.

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


Having read some of the others commenting here I'm sure they've got much more chance of success than me, however as archangelbeth @20 said, 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.


[[ Poster failed to comprehend requirement 1 - mod ]]


A most comprehensive list but not obviously including your (published) name, and your email address doesn't obviously link to it either. I assume from the blog post that you are AC Wise, but as a general note to others, please make sure either that your name is obvious, or that you list it within the comment.

(This has been a Public Service Announcement from the moderation team)


Saw this in Scalzi's post, so taking advantage. Thanks for the opportunity.

My name is Suzanne Vincent. I'm editor-in-chief at Flash Fiction Online ( and would be honored to just be noticed.

Best Editor (short form)
Best Semiprozine for Flash Fiction Online


Thank you, Charlie.

My novel, ACK-ACK MACAQUE was published in January 2013, and is therefore eligible for the Hugos, the BSFA, and so on.

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.


Aw thank you Charlie! My novelette "The Waiting Stars" is eligible for this year's awards: I've put it online here


I have three eligible short stories this year.

- "Die for You" in Daily Science Fiction

- "Sweet Home" in Penumbra

- "Wasted Youth" in the Kazka Press

Thank you very much for putting this post together.


Thank you, Charlie! 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:


Hi, Charlie! Thank you for posting this. My friend sent me here knowing I put a book out in 2013. Depending on the word count criteria, it's either a novel or novella (it hovers between 50 and 60K). While I'm likely not eligible for the Hugo or Campbell, I live in Oregon, which does make my latest book eligible for the Endeavour Award, and possibly others, but I'm not sure.

Library Cat-A-Clysm
Book Two of the Library Cat Chronicles
Danie’s world turns upside down once again. She’s settling into her life, knowing where she stands with those from her past. Right? Wrong. Danie learns that people aren’t always entirely what they seem, the hard way. What she’s known isn’t what she was always led to believe, and that she’s respected and loved even more than she realized.

Libary Cat-A-Clysm
A.P.Adams - Library Cat Chronicles

Thank you!


Thank you! I'll de-lurk and post :) I’m eligible for the Campbell Award for Best New Writer.

My Hugo/Nebula eligible stories this year (all in Short category):

* Mouse Choirs of the Old Mátra in Demeter’s Spicebox, Feb 2013

I also blog, primarily about diversity and speculative fiction, if anyone wishes to nominate me for Best Fan Writer. A project I did recently that I was proud of was assembling this list of diverse editors of SFF.

I have some poetry eligible for the SF poetry awards, too.


I've got two eligibles for the Hugos this year:

Unburning Alexandria, novel,

“Ian, George and George” (novelette, Analog Magazine, December 2013)
