NEWS: Hugo Awards Nomination Period Now Open + Free Stuff for Worldcon Members
This year’s Hugo Awards nomination period is now open. The 2015 Hugo Awards will be presented in Spokane, WA during Sasquan, the 73rd World Science Fiction Convention (Aug. 19-23). Nominations close on March 10, 2015.
Anyone who is or was a voting member of the 2014, 2015, or 2016 Worldcons by the end of the day (Pacific Time/GMT – 8) on January 31, 2015 is eligible to nominate. You may nominate only once, regardless of how many of those three Worldcons you are a member. If you’re not already eligible to nominate and don’t plan to attend, you can purchase a supporting membership for $40, which gives you voting/nomination rights.
Nominations may be submitted through the online ballot, available here.
To assist you in finding material to nominate, I’ve assembled this post to list everything that I worked on in 2014.
- Most of Lightspeed‘s original fiction from 2014 is available online (and also much of the 2014 original fiction is available as a podcast).
- Most of Nightmare‘s original fiction from 2014 is available online (and also much of the 2014 original fiction is available as a podcast).
- Selected stories from The End is Nigh and The End is Now are available online.
- Selected stories from Help Fund My Robot Army & Other Improbable Crowdfunding Projects are available online.
- Selected stories from Dead Man’s Hand are available online.
- Selected stories from Robot Uprisings are available online.
Also, here is a spreadsheet showing the word counts of all the material I published in 2014 in Lightspeed, Nightmare, and in the abovementioned anthologies.
If you are planning and eligible to vote for the Hugos this year, if you email me proof of your Worldcon membership (i.e., your name is listed on the Worldcon 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 some additional 2014 material I edited available to you in digital format.
After the jump, you’ll find all of the 2014 eligible stories/authors that either appeared in Lightspeed or Nightmare, or in projects I’m otherwise affiliated with. Everything is sorted into their proper Hugo categories.
Novellas, Novelettes, & Short Stories
To aid you in sorting through the voting categories, I’ve color-coded the stories in the following spreadsheets (Novella: red | Novelette: blue | Short Story: black). They’re also all sorted by word count, longest to shortest.
