End of Year Writing Review, Award Eligibility


Kirk Drift has been long-listed for the BSFA this year, which is cool, and I’m possibly eligible for the Hugo for fanwriter or related work, so, consider me, I guess?

‘Related Work’ is a broad church that should maybe go to a full volume or larger project, though, and ONCE AGAIN I think this should go to Black Spec Fic II, the 2016 count (see last year’s argument for that). Given this, ‘fanwriter’ is probably the better shout. I also consistently admire Maureen K. Speller and Aishwarya Subramanian‘s contributions to the field. If you were looking to recognise someone or something great, these would be good picks. Last year I said Nussbaum, and so did you, so I now believe firmly in my own magical predictive power.
