Award season… Or, For your consideration…

By  |  3 Comments

Today, I have some cool news and a humble request. First, The Winds of Khalakovo has been nominated for the David Gemmell Morningstar Award! The nominations aren’t complete, but I’m already in great company.

Second, award season is upon us. This is the point where readers can nominate works of fiction for the Hugos and Nebulas. This year, The Winds of Khalakovo is eligible, and I humbly ask for your consideration.

For the Hugos, any person who was or is a member of the 2011, 2012, or 2013 Worldcons as of January 31, 2012, is eligible to nominate for the 2012 Hugo Awards. (Even if you’re a member of more than one of those three Worldcons, you may only cast one nominating ballot.) If you are not a member of any of those conventions, you may join Chicon 7 or LoneStarCon 3, the 2013 Worldcon, before January 31, 2012 to become eligible. See the 2012 Hugo Site for more information on nominating works.

For the Nebulas, Active and Associate SFWA members may nominate works, until February 15th, for the awards to be presented at the May 19th Nebula Awards Weekend Banquet. See the SFWA Nebula Site for more information on nominating works.

Thanks so much.

    Are you eligible for a Campbell, Brad?

      Unfortunately, no. I made my first pro sale to Writers of the Future in 2004. So, unfortunately, 2005 and 2006 were my two years of Campbell eligibility. It’s too bad the rules are structured that way. It leans heavily (though not always) to people that break out with novels as opposed to short fiction.

    Something being discussed on twitter today, yeah.

    Okay, good to know. I’ve not made my nominations yet, and was thinking of you in my “final five” for the Campbell.
