Le Noms 2015

It's that time of year again. Nomination season has come round, so here's a quick run down on my work from this year. Feel free to do with them as you will.

Short Stories:
"Causeway" - The Future Fire, Issue 2015.34, October 2015
"She Must" - Capricious, September 21, 2015
"The Long Trip Home" - "Daughters of Frankenstein: Lesbian Mad Scientists", Lethe Press, July 28, 2015
"Gravity Well" - Scigentasy, Issue 9, May 2015
"The Unofficial Guide to Travelling with Kin" - Betwixt Magazine, January 2015

From the shorts I had published this year, I feel the biggest affinity with "Gravity Well" (a Clarion story) and "She Must".

Novelette:"Long's Confandabulous Clockwork Circus and Carnival, and Cats of Many Persuasions" - Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, Issue 61, September 2015

 I am very proud of this story. It's the longest piece I've ever written, and it's a fun adventure set in a steampunk, alt-history Egypt.

"Ahead of her time and lost in time: on feminism, gender, and bisexuality" - "Letters to Tiptree", edited by Alisa Krasnostein and Alexandra Pierce, Twelfth Planet Press, August 24, 2015

There aren't many awards that take single pieces of non-fiction upon their merits for nomination, but I'm putting this essay here anyway because I've very proud of it. It meant a lot to me to write and have it published celebrating the life of one of my favourite authors. For the SJVs, it might come under the fan writing category.

New Zealand's Sir Julius Vogel Awards are now open for nominations. Here is a link to the rules and an explanation of the categories, and here is the information on how to make a nomination.

Thanks, as always. And if you have any you'd like considered for nomination, pop the details below in comments.
