Awards eligibility

4 Jan

Aliette de Bodard’s kind inclusion of me in her awards eligibility post reminded me that I should probably make one myself. It will not be as generous as Aliette’s because I’m not very good at keeping up with new stuff in sff — for the past two weeks I have been sailing along blissfully in the lovely Surprise, troubled only by Stephen’s laudanum habit — but I do recommend having a look at her post because she has lots of interesting recommendations.

Published short stories this year were:

The First Witch of Damansara in Bloody Fabulous, ed. Ekaterina Sedia, Prime Books (October 2012). 6,100 words.

The Earth Spirit’s Favourite Anecdote in Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine #54 (Table of Contents and link to purchase — you’ve got to scroll a fair way down) (May 2012). 5,500 words.

I’m also in my second year of eligibility for the Campbell Award for Best New Writer, as Aliette observes.

I’m happy to provide copies of these stories for anyone who’d like to read them for awards-related purposes — just comment with your email address, or drop me a line via the contact form.

Do it even if you don’t think anyone reads your blog or follows your Twitter account who even votes for this kind of thing. Do it even if making the post makes you cringe. My blog doesn’t get a lot of pageviews, but I am absolutely certain that I wouldn’t have got the Campbell nomination if I hadn’t made this post last year. […]
