2008 Awards Season

Following the lead of John Scalzi, Jay Lake, and others, I thought I’d post a list of things things I’ve published that are eligible for awards in 2008.

Since Wastelands is officially a 2008 book, nothing to do with that is eligible this awards season. With that in mind, I think the only thing I’m eligible for is some World Fantasy categories, such as Best Anthology (maybe, if the Pirate Issue counts).

But really, the only thing I could realistically be nominated for is the World Fantasy Award Special Award: Professional, for:

So I’m not really eligible for much as of yet. Next year, I should be eligible for the Best Editor (short-form) Hugo Award. But meanwhile, all of the stories I bought for the Pirate Issue are eligible for the various Short Story awards:

Eligible for Best Short Story (Hugo, Nebula [through end of Oct.], World Fantasy, Stoker, IGH):

  • The Sweet Realm by Jill Snider Lum [read]
  • Captain Blood’s B00ty by Jeremiah Tolbert [read]
  • A Hand for Each by J. Kathleen Cheney
  • The Blackguard of God by Melinda Selmys
  • Come to the Islands by Mikal Trimm
  • The Barbary Shore by James L. Cambias
  • Pirates by Adeline Thromb Age 8 by Marissa K. Lingen
  • The Furies by Rajan Khanna
  • The Perfect Hook by Justine Graykin
  • Hard Times for Bartleby Crow by Grant Stone

Also, I’d point out that you can and should nominate Shimmer for the Best Fanzine Hugo Award, and can also nominate Beth Wodzinski, the publisher, for the World Fantasy Award Special Award: Non-Professional.
