World Fantasy Awards Nomination Period Now Open + Free Stuff for World Fantasy Members

This year’s World Fantasy Awards nomination period is now open.

The World Fantasy Awards will be presented in Washington, D.C. during the World Fantasy Convention (Nov. 6-9). Deadline for nominating is and ballots must be received by May 31, 2014.

All registered members of the 2012 World Fantasy Convention, the 2013 World Fantasy Convention, and the 2014 event in Washington, D.C. will be eligible to vote before the deadline. If you didn’t attend one of the previously mentioned World Fantasy conventions, and you don’t plan to attend this year, you can still nominate by purchasing a supporting membership.

Already registered? Go and nominate your favorite works! Voting information is available on the World Fantasy Convention 2013 website.

To assist you in finding material to nominate, I’ve assembled this post to list everything that I worked on in 2013.

  • All of Lightspeed‘s original fiction from 2013 is available online (and also much of the 2013 original fiction is available as a podcast).
  • All of Nightmare‘s original fiction from 2013 is available online (and also much of the 2013 original fiction is available as a podcast).
  • Selected stories from Oz Reimagined are available online.
  • Selected stories from The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination are available online.

If you are planning and eligible to vote for the World Fantasy Awards this year, if you email me proof of your World Fantasy membership (i.e., your name is listed on the World Fantasy website as an attending member, or the email confirmation or receipt you received when you purchased your membership, etc.) I would be happy to make all of my 2013 content available to you in digital format.

After the jump, you’ll find all of the 2013 eligible stories/authors that either appeared in Lightspeed or Nightmare, or in projects I’m otherwise affiliated with.

__________

Some of the stories in Oz Reimagined and The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination are SF rather than Fantasy, and thus may not be eligible; though given the themes of each, it’s kind of debatable whether the stories are SF or Fantasy, so I leave it up to the voters to decide.
