Awards Eligibility – 2015

Awards season is once again  moving into full swing, with nominations now open for the Nebula Awards, Hugo Awards and World Fantasy Awards.

Having been fairly busy during 2015, I’ve been fortunate enough to help publish a number of what I think are really excellent works of fiction that I think are worthy of your consideration. It was a year when I edited or co-edited new novellas for, a collection of Jack Vance fiction (Grand Crusades, the final book in the series of Vance reprints), two anthologies (see below),  appeared on and produced than 48 episodes of The Coode Street Podcast episodes, and acted as reviews editor for Locus.

The anthologies, of which I’m very proud, are:

Meeting Infinity (Solaris)
The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year: Volume Nine (Solaris)
As a guide, fiction in Reach for Infinity is science fiction, in Fearsome Magics is fantasy/dark fantasy, and in Subterranean Magazine is mixed.
