I’ve been rounding up awards-eligibility posts and recommended reading lists from others, and now I’m finally getting around to putting together a post of my own. This was a year of reprints for me, but I did manage to sneak in a few originals. I even have stories eligible in the novelette category! If you’re reading for awards, and you’d like copies of any of the stories that aren’t freely available online for consideration, drop me a note.
Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife – Shimmer #21
Taking the Ghost – Upgraded (Wyrm Publishing)
Matthew, Waiting – Fractured: Tales of the Canadian Post-Apocalypse (Exile)
And the Carnival Leaves Town – Nightmare Carnival (Dark Horse)
There’s a post over at Unlikely Story covering the editorial side of what I did in 2014. Obviously I’m biased, but I think everything published at Unlikely Story in 2014 is well-worth your awards consideration.
In addition to all the usual awards – Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, etc. – I’m eligible for Canadian Awards like the Prix Aurora.
So there you have it. I’ll be putting together a separate post with my favorite reads of 2014 at some point as well.
