Obligatory SF/F Awards Season Post

5 Jan

It’s awards season again, which means I’ve a lot of screeners to watch before voting in the SAG-AFTRA awards and that it’s that time when those of us in the SF/F author/artist/writer community make posts about their eligible projects for the Hugos and other awards.

While technically I had two essays published in 2013 which are now eligible, it’s really the two volumes they’re contained in I’d like to remind you of.

The first is Queers Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the LGBTQ Fans Who Love It, edited by Sigrid Ellis and Michael Damian Thomas.  It is what it says on the tin and a cousin of the Chicks Dig series from Mad Norwegian Press. Essays range from personal to somewhat academic and come from people of a wide variety of genders, orientations, identities and experiences, both with queerness and the Doctor Who universe.

The second is Doctor Who in Time and Space: Essays on Themes, Characters, History and Fandom, 1963-2012 (Critical Explorations in Science Fiction and Fantasy), edited by Dr. Gillian I. Leitch and is from McFarland.  It’s academic in tone, but fairly accessible.  I had a great time meeting several of the contributors to this volume at a release event in Toronto last year, and I think the book itself does reflect the lively and diverse nature of that particular group.

As usual, please use the comments to tell me about what material you have that’s eligible.   2013 was a long year, and I may need the reminder more than usual before the nomination periods begin.

    Well, this feels a little odd since you only know me under a pseudonym, and that not very much. But I figure you can always just ignore the comment. And I do have two short stories eligible for the first time this year.

    She wasn’t a rabbi, she wasn’t a priestess, but she had one perfect prayer.
    Mother of Waters,” by April L’Orange, from Crossed Genres Magazine. Also in the anthology Crossed Genres 2.0 Book One, which has some seriously good stuff in terms of diverse SF/F.

    “So how do you screw up your karma so badly that you come back as a goldfish?”
    “Quick Karma,” by April L’Orange, in Dagan Books’ FISH anthology. It isn’t viewable online, but if you or anyone reading this cares to read the story, I’d be happy to send a copy.

    I find I’m curious if you’ve talked about the BBC Sherlock series anywhere? I’ve always loved your posts on Glee (well, I’ve always loved your posts in general), and Sherlock seems like something you might have some thoughts about (or maybe not!)
