Our Hugo/Nebula Eligible Work 2012

written by David Steffen

The SF award nomination season is here.  The Nebulas (the writer-voted award) have been open for a while and close in February.  The Hugos (the fan-voted award) opened on January first.  Both sets cover works published in the 2012 calendar year.  About this time of year, every writer and their dog posts a list of their eligible works.

I won’t tell you to nominate these works.  I haven’t heard of anyone nominating us in the past and I don’t expect that to change.  Of course it’s all of phenomenal quality, because we wrote it and stuff.

And don’t worry, I’ll write up a separate post in the near future to make recommendations of what I’d like to see win the awards.  I figured it would make sense to separate them so that I wouldn’t have to try to objectively compare my own work to theirs.  In THAT post I’ll also ask for nomination suggestions from people, but we’ll keep those out of this post.

    I’d love a Hugo nomination. That would be sweet.
