Multiple Award Nominees for 2010

People both online and offline have written in to let me know about a whole bunch of award short lists that I missed in this post (although to be fair, some of those nominations were announced this week, a few days after the original Consensus post went up). Since there’s so much interest, I’ve gone through and done a more systematic round-up of the awards. I’ve also got a spreadsheet (yay spreadsheets!) that I’ll be able to update as new awards nominations come out. As with any hand-entered data set, this one will certainly still have errors. Please let me know what I’ve missed or mis-typed. Also, if you find more links to the short fiction online, please let me know!

    Mira Grant’s novel _Feed_ is a finalist for both the Hugo and Shirley Jackson Awards.

    Brett – you’re right, but with 20 awards now it takes 3 nominations to make the cut. That makes the difference between a list of 9 (now) and a list of 30 (with two nominations each). I’ll edit the post to reflect that. Thanks!

    Not to add to your troubles but there is a catagory that’s been omitted: original s.s. collections. Off-hand, the Locus, Stoker and Jacksons have specific awards lists for that catagory and there are probably others. The Crawfords P.K. Dick and possibly other awards do include s.s. collections as well as novels in their lists.

    Rick – I’m so glad that you’re willing to sign me up for more work! Yes, several awards have categories for collections, and/or anthologies, and some for related non-fiction as well. In the interest of keeping things ‘manageable,’ I decided to draw a line at the four ‘classic’ fiction categories. Even that got a bit tricky, since some awards put novellas in with novels and some put all the ‘short fiction’ in one category.
