A plug for other writers: my Hugo nominations

I finally got around to making my Hugo nominations this morning, after I realized that I’d moved on to 2012 reading and wasn’t planning on doing anymore reading for 2011. I’m listing my nominations below because these writers wrote some outstanding stories and deserve recognition for them. If you haven’t made your nominations yet, or not sure what to nominate, you should consider these folks below.

Best short story

Best novelette

  • “Therapeutic Mathematics and the Physics of Curveballs” by Gray Rinehart (Analog, Septmber 2011)
  • The Observation Post” by Allen M. Steele (Asimov’s September 2011)

Best novella

Best novel

  • 11/22/63 by Stephen King (Scribner)
  • Firebird by Jack McDevitt (Ace)

Best fan writer

All of these stories are, in my opinion, award-worthy and they made for a great year of reading for me.

  1. Some very intriguing choices. I’m always jazzed when people I know post their choices. It’s like some kind of projective test, the SF equivalent of the Thematic Apperception Test. Very cool.
