Uncanny is a World Fantasy Award Finalist!

Last night, the World Fantasy Award ballot was publicly released, and we learned that Uncanny Magazine is a finalist for a World Fantasy Award in the Special Award, Nonprofessional category.

We also learned that “Pockets” by Amal El-Mohtar and “The Heat of Us: Notes Toward an Oral History” by Sam J. Miller are finalists in the short story category. (Both of these stories are free to read on our website *and* are featured on our podcast.

Congratulations to all of the nominees!

This has been an astonishing year so far for Uncanny. Stories, illustrations, and the magazine have been named as finalists for the Hugo, the Locus, the World Fantasy, the Chesley, and the Theodore Sturgeon awards.

If it is possible to be both proud and completely floored, you’re looking at it.

This wouldn’t be possible without our amazing staff, our Space Unicorn Ranger Corps supporters, and the excellent writers, artists, and other contributors that we publish.

Thank you.

Shine on, Space Unicorns!
