It’s that time of year again! I’m busy writing my annual report at work, so it’s a good time to write down What I Did in SF/F in 2014, too.
For Michael and I, the biggest accomplishment this year was all of us surviving Caitlin’s spinal surgery. Period.
That said, here are the things I made in 2014 that are eligible for awards. If you liked them, I appreciate your consideration.
In 2014, Michael and I launched a new short fiction market, and I participated in a podcast. Both of these activities are eligible for Hugo Awards (but not Nebula Awards), so I’ve listed the relevant categories. The short stories listed below are also eligible for Nebula Awards, and you can find a copy of them in the area of the SFWA Forums dedicated to that purpose if you are so inclined.
1. Uncanny Magazine! Issue One launched in November 2014 after a successful Kickstarter in August (THANK YOU), which means that the stories in it are eligible for 2014 ballots, although the magazine itself doesn’t meet any eligibility requirements for nominations that I know of until we complete some additional issues.
2014 Short fiction!
- If You Were a Tiger, I’d Have to Wear White by Maria Dahvana Headley
- The Boy Who Grew Up by Christopher Barzak
- Presence by Ken Liu
- Migration by Kat Howard
- Late Nights at the Cape and Cane by Max Gladstone
- Celia and the Conservation of Entropy by Amelia Beamer
Thanks to my previous work and Uncanny Issue One, I also once again meet eligibility requirements for the Best Editor, Short Form category of the Hugo Awards.
I also did some podcasting this year! The Verity! Podcast (which was also nominated for Best Fancast) had an awesome year, and I encourage you to check it out if you are so inclined.
I’m doing a bunch of reading right now, and I will be posting some of the things I’m looking at for my own ballot, too. But that’s another blog post…
