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.
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 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.
