2015 Awards Recommendations (and my eligible works)

It’s that time of year again. This year I’ve been focussing on reading current short fiction rather than novels, so my awards recommendations are all under novel-length. I still have a lot to read, so I’ll update this post as I read more things, but for now here are my favourites for this year (in no particular order):


“Our Lady of the Open Road” by Sarah Pinsker (Asimov’s)

Short Story

“Android Whores Can’t Cry” by Natalia Theodoridou (Clarkesworld)
“Broken” by Jason Kimble (Escape Pod)
“Here Is My Thinking On A Matter That Concerns Us All” by Rahul Kanakia (Lightspeed)
“Weight of the World” by José Pablo Iriarte (Fantastic Stories of the Imagination)
“When the Circus Lights Down” by Sarah Pinsker (Uncanny Magazine)


As for my stuff, I have two works eligible for nomination this year. Both are eligible for the Hugo, Nebula, Aurora (Canadian SFF awards) and Sir Julius Vogel (New Zealand SFF awards).

You would know if you are eligible to nominate for the first three, but anyone may make free nominations for the SJVs. It’s just an email away, more information is here (and the info you need to submit is below, plus your contact details). If you’ve enjoyed any SF, fantasy or horror by a New Zealander (including films and comics!), I’d encourage you to nominate.
