2015 Winners

Here are some award winning sci-fi works to consider. I was excited to learn about these awards since there aren’t that many for the SFF genre.

Planetary Awards

We had a number of ties this year, so to break them, I’m putting on my tin-pot dictator helmet and instituting arbitrary, last-minute, unannounced rule changes.

In the ‘best short story’ category, the new tiebreaking rule is: the shorter story wins. The winning short story for 2015 is “Something in the Water” by C.S. Boyack, found in The Experimental Notebook of C. S. Boyack.

I’m combining the novel categories, so there is a single ‘best novel’. I’m also allowing a partially-completed vote to break a tie, so the winning novel for 2015 is Torchship, by Karl Gallagher.


I appreciate all the book bloggers who participated in the nomination and voting process. Over the course of 2016, I plan to re-blog your credentialing posts as a thank you.

New ideas and suggestions for changes to the 2016 Planetary Awards are welcome in the comments section.
