HUGO AWARDS NOMINATIONS

OK, with two weeks to go before the nomination period closes, I think I’ve probably read all the items published in 2015 that I’m going to.

So – here’s what I’m nominating. Not presented as a recommendation of what anyone else should nominate – but simply as a recommendation of stories I thought were (more than) worth reading!

NOVEL:
The Fifth Season – NK Jemisin
The Traitor Baru Cormorant – Seth Dickinson
Uprooted – Naomi Novik

added: Bryony & Roses – T. Kingfisher (Ursula Vernon)

NOVELLA:
Of Sorrow and Such – Angela Slatter
Wylding Hall – Elizabeth Hand
Sorcerer of the Wildeeps – Kai Ashante Wilson

NOVELETTE:
Botanica Veneris: Thirteen Papercuts by Ida Countess Rathangan – Ian McDonald
One Hundred Ablutions – Jacqueline Carey
Another Word for World – Ann Leckie
Bones of Air, Bones of Stone – Stephen Leigh
Corpsemouth – John Langan

SHORT STORY:
City of Ash – Paolo Bacigalupi
The Dowager of Bees – China Mieville
Little Sisters – Vonda McIntyre
The Lily and the Horn – Catherynne Valente
The Game of Smash and Recovery – Kelly Link

I reserve the the right to edit in the next two weeks if I do read something else remarkable! 😉
