And now my nominees for Best Novelette. There were some other terrific novelettes, but these ended up on my ballot. Looking at them, they’re all from anthologies, which is unusual for me, and there’s a real gender issue. That tended to balance over my ballot, but not here. Although there were a lot of great novelettes published in 2015, I don’t think you’d regret reading any of these.
- “Another Word for World,” Ann Leckie (Future Visions)
- “Capitalism in the 22nd Century,” Geoff Ryman (Stories for Chip)
- “Black Dog,” Neil Gaiman (Trigger Warnings and Other Disturbances)
- “My Last Bringback,” John Barnes (Meeting Infinity)
- “Botanica Veneris: Thirteen Papercuts by Ida Countess Rathangan,” Ian McDonald (Old Venus)
