NEWS: Two LIGHTSPEED Stories Make the Nebula Ballot!

In case you missed the news, the first of the major awards have announced their lists of finalists for last year’s work, and I’m pleased to announce that Lightspeed stories “Sooner or Later Everything Falls Into the Sea” by Sarah Pinsker and “Welcome to the Medical Clinic at the Interplanetary Relay Station│Hours Since the Last Patient Death: 0” by Caroline M. Yoachim are finalists for the Nebula Award this year. Congrats to Sarah and Caroline and to everyone else on the Nebula ballot!

That brings Lightspeed’s lifetime Nebula nomination total to eighteen since we launched in June 2010. Lightspeed has currently lost sixteen in a row, so here’s hoping Sarah and/or Caroline breaks the streak! (Though of course, Alyssa Wong’s story, “Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers,” from Nightmare won the Nebula last year, making Nightmare 1-for-1.) You can find the full slate of nominees at sfwa.org. The Nebulas will be presented at the 2017 Nebula Awards Conference, held this year in Pittsburgh, PA, May 18-21.

NEWS: 2016 Hugo Award Finalists

I’m pleased to announce that Brooke Bolander’s story for Lightspeed, “And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead,” which was previously announced as a Nebula Award and Sturgeon Award finalist, is now also a Hugo Award finalist! Lightspeed is no longer eligible in the semiprozine category (which it won the last two years), but I’m pleased to report that I have been nominated in the Best Editor, Short Form category. And last but not least, Alyssa Wong—whose story for Nightmare, “Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers,” is a finalist for both the Nebula and Stoker—is a finalist this year for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. Major congrats to Brooke on the rare achievement of being nominated for both the Hugo and Nebula for the same work, and to Alyssa for netting a coveted Campbell nod in the same year she’s up for the Stoker and Nebula.

Thank you so much to all of you who nominated; you can see a full list of the other finalists at midamericon2.org.

Nebula Awards season is upon us. Current Nebula rules dictate that during the annual nomination period (November 15th thru February 15th), eligible members of SFWA can nominate works for the Nebula. The six works that receive the highest number of nominations during the nomination period in each category will be placed on the final ballot.

My anthologies include several works that are currently eligible. All stories belong in the short story category unless otherwise noted. Linked stories are available online in their entirety.

Hugo Award Nominating Deadlines

When I made my Hugo Awards post, I neglected to mention that in order to nominate for this year’s award, you have to have either been an attending or supporting member of last year’s Worldcon (Denvention), or you have to register as an attending or supporting member of this year’s Worldcon (Anticipation) by January 31.

So, if you want to nominate, and you didn’t have a membership last year, go here to register. Since the deadline is approaching, you should probably do that now.

If you just want to vote, choose an adult supporting membership ($55 Canadian, about $44 US dollars). Otherwise, buy an attending membership. If you’re not sure if you want to attend, you can buy a supporting membership now, so that you can nominate, and then upgrade your membership later to a full attending membership if you decide to go to the convention.

Once you’re registered, you have until February 28–or rather, your ballot must be received by February 28.
