It's awards time again! The Bram Stoker Award nominees were announced last week. I won't bother listing them here, since they've already been reprinted on a thousand other blogs and sites. However, I will wish good luck to my good friends on ballot:
Greg Lamberson and Lee Thomas in the Novel category for Cosmic Forces and The German, respectively; Peter Straub in Long Fiction for The Ballad of Ballard and Sandrine; Ellen Datlow in Anthology twice with Blood and Other Cravings and Supernatural Noir, and John Skipp in the same category for Demons; Nick Mamatas for Starve Better in Non-Fiction; and Linda Addison in Poetry Collection for How to Recognize a Demon Has Become Your Friend.
Also, the Nebula Awards nominees were just announced! You can see the full list here. I'd like to wish good luck to my good friends on this ballot, too:
Genevieve Valentine and N.K. Jemisin, both of whom are nominated in the Novel category, for Mechanique and The Kingdom of Gods, respectively; and Mary Robinette Kowal in Novella for “Kiss Me Twice” from Asimov’s Science Fiction, June 2011.
This blog post should not be considered endorsements of or votes for the works of these authors. I am not a member of HWA or SFWA, so I don't vote in either award. I am, however, excited for my friends, and want to publicly wish them the best of luck.
