Ah. I have once more totally missed the boat on World Fantasy Award nominations, for which BABA YAGA’S DAUGHTER & OTHER TALES OF THE OLD RACES is eligible as a single-author collection for the publication year 2012. Today, as it turns out, is the last day for nominations.
If you happen to be a WFC member, and you care to make a last-minute rush on nominating BABA YAGA’S DAUGHTER, http://www.wfc2013.org/wfballot01.html :)
I am really not very good at this awards pursuit thing, which is kind of too bad in this particular case, because I actually do think BYD is award-worthy. Ah well. :)
In the meantime, let me support Kari Sperring’s splendid suggestions for other nominees with the following: Michelle Sagara’s wonderful Silence, Chaz Brenchley’s House of Bells and Liz Williams’, Worldsoul in the novel category; Aliette de Bodard’s ‘On A Red Station, Drifting’ for novella; and, in the short story category, Jacey Bedord’s funny and charming ‘Djinn Bottle’, Aliette’s wonderful, Nebula-winning ‘Immersion’, and Rochita Loenen-Ruiz, ‘Song of the Body Cartographer’.
