Annual Not-At-All-Obligatory #HumbleBrag Award-Eligibility Post #scifi

I had two novelettes published in 2014; you may have read them and enjoyed them–or you may be about to read them an enjoy them. If either is the case, and if you’d like to register that enjoyment on some sort of ballot, it’s your lucky day!


  • “There Was No Sound of Thunder” (Asimov’s Science Fiction, June 2014)
  • “The Traveling Salesman Solution” (The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, July/August 2014)
    These are both eligible for the Nebula and Hugo Awards in the “novelette” category.


    Anyone who is/was a voting member at the 2014, 2015, or 2016 Worldcons can nominate works for the Hugo Award. Any Active, Lifetime Active, Associate, or Lifetime Associate member of the SFWA can nominate works for the Nebula Award.
    Not a member of anything? Not a problem! “There Was No Sound of Thunder” is also in the running for the 29th Annual Asimov’s Readers’ Award (FUN FACT: This story is a sequel to “The New Guys Always Work Overtime,” which tied for best short story last year.)–*Yikes!* Voting for the Asimov’s Readers’ Award closes February 1, 2015! Vote NOW!


    Still haven’t read one of those novelettes? Lost your summer issues of Asimov’s and F&SF when your roof leaked? The magazines in question will likely hook you up with copies of my stories if you ask, but I’m also happy to do so myself; just email me and we’ll sort it out. Thanks!
