I have only a few stories eligible for awards for 2015 (or, you know, for 2016, but published in 2015…), all in the Short Story category.
The one I'm singling out is "The Plausibility of Dragons", Lightspeed Magazine #66 (November 2015). There are a number of reasons that I'm foregrounding this particular story, but mostly it's because I think it does something a little new, so that it may be slightly more deserving of attention than my other work for the year.
Other stories of mine that are eligible this year:
- "The Sisters' Line" (co-authored with Liz Argall), Uncanny Magazine #6 (2015).
- "The Last Bombardment", in "Flash on the Borderlands XXVII: What's the Matter with Kids Today?", Pseudopod # 459 (October 9, 2015).
- "Trusting What I Smell", Perihelion Science Fiction (April 12, 2015). (This one's no longer available online. If you're interested, I'll send you a copy).
Please keep in mind that I don't read nearly as much as I should, and so this list (long as it is) should be taken with a grain of salt, because I know I've probably missed lots and lots of wonderful stuff. Also, you'll notice that both of my YA (Norton Award) picks are also on my list of novels, because I've never understood why you'd exclude a YA work from the other categories. Finally, you see that there are no novellas. That's because, um, I haven't actually read any novellas from 2015 (hides).
