My semi-obligatory awards-eligibility post

As we come to the end of a calendar year, it’s that magical time of year when authors remind folks which of their books published in the last 11 months are eligible to be nominated for various industry literary awards.

I had two novels published this year, and while I think both are extreme long-shots to win any awards, I’m enough of a glutton for punishment to put them out there for your collective consideration.

The first book is THE SHADOW COMMISSION.

Book three of my Dark Arts series from Tor Books, it was published by Tor on August 11, 2020.

Its subgenre is “secret history,” but for awards categories it can fit into “alternate history” or “urban fantasy.”

The Shadow Commission is technically eligible to be nominated for the following awards, in these respective categories:

The Dragon Awards, in Best Alternate History Novel (it’s free to sign up to nominate and vote for this award)
The World Fantasy Award, Best Novel (nomination and voting open only to World Fantasy convention members)
The Nebula Award, Best Novel (nomination and voting open only to SFWA Members)
The Hugo Award, Best Novel (nomination and voting open only to WorldCon members)
The Sidewise Award, Best Long-form Alternate History (I think my publisher has to submit my book for this)

 


The second book is STAR TREK: MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN DEATH.

It’s a story based on the version of the Star Trek universe and characters as depicted in the three feature films produced by J.J. Abrams.

My novel was published by Gallery Books (an imprint of Simon & Schuster) on August 11, 2020.

Its genre is science fiction, and its subcategory would be “media tie-in.”

Star Trek: More Beautiful Than Death is eligible to be nominated for the following awards, in these respective categories:

The Dragon Awards, in Best Media Tie-In Novel (it’s free to sign up to nominate and vote for this award)
The Nebula Award, Best Novel (nomination and voting open only to SFWA Members)
The Hugo Award, Best Novel (nomination and voting open only to WorldCon members)
The Scribe Award, Best Long-form Alternate History (My publisher has already submitted my book.)

 


And that’s it. That’s what I have for your consideration this year. Do with this information what you will.
