World Fantasy Award Nominations Due May 31, 2013!

Nominations for the 2012 World Fantasy Awards close soon. The WFAs are a juried award, but three of the five finalists in each category are chosen not by the judges but by reader nomination. We are very proud of our four nominations for editor John Klima in the Non-Professional category, and the nomination of Jeffrey Ford’s story “The Way He Does It” in the Short Fiction category.

For any Electric Velocipede readers interested in nominating , here are details on how you can nominate and links to several of our best-reviewed stories of the year.

Nominations close on May 31, so plan to do it soon.

Are You Eligible to Nominate?
If you were a member of World Fantasy Con last year (2012, Toronto) or in 2011 (San Diego), or are a member this year (2013, Brighton UK), you are eligible to nominate.

Deadline to Nominate:
Voting closes on May 31, 2011.

How to Nominate:
Go to  World Fantasy Convention 2013 — World Fantasy Awards Ballot and either use the online nomination form, or use one of their file-format ballots (DOC, PDF, etc) and email it to the email address provided (rturner@arctera.com).

What’s Eligible?
Any content published in 2012 would be eligible which means issues #24 and #25. While everything from those issues is fantastic, since you have a day-and-a-half, here are some of the stories that received the most notice from those issues.

Best Short Fiction:
“Heaven Under Earth” by Aliette de Bodard
“Cutting” by Ken Liu
“Glass Boxes and Clockwork Gods” by Damien Walters Grintalis
“The Night We Drank Cold Wine” by Megan Kurashige

You can click on the issue numbers above to see entire issues. As far as we know, editor John Klima is also eligible for the Special Award – Non-professional. Sadly no one from the EV camp will be in Brighton this year, but we hope to be at the convention next year!
