So, the ballot for the World Fantasy Award arrived in my mailbox yesterday.
I have no idea what to nominate. If I can’t think of enough stuff to nominate, I’ll just toss the ballot. But first, I thought I’d ask you all for recommendations.
What novels were published in 2017 that you would like to see nominated for the WFA this year? (Besides mine. Those I remember quite well.)
Did you read any 2017 short fiction that you really liked and would like to see nominated? I can think of just a few novellas — Martha Well’s Murderbot, which I’m a bit uncomfortable with because it was SF and not fantasy; and Bujold’s latest Penric novella, which I liked a lot. What am I forgetting? I feel like there was at least one more novella I really liked.
What about short stories, anything I should check out quickly? Collections?
It looks like CJC still has not received a Life Achievement Award, so I’ll nominate her. It says here that nominees should be at least 62 years old, which I hadn’t realized, but according to Wikipedia, CJC is over that age, so that’s fine.Anybody else I should think of for that?
