Award Eligible Authors

Because I'm very proud of my clients, I wanted to let you all know that the following ones are eligible for various awards during this 2009 season. I'm focusing on the Hugos right now, but the eligibility and things published by my clients in 2008 will be applicable for other awards as well.

  1. John Joseph Adams is eligible for the Hugo Award for Best Editor (Short Form). His qualifying works include the Shimmer Magazine Pirate Issue from November 2007, as well as WASTELANDS, SEEDS OF CHANGE, and THE LIVING DEAD, all three which were released in 2008.
  2. Douglas Elliott Cohen is eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. This is his second year of eligibility.
  3. Colin Harvey is eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. This is his second year of eligibility. He is eligible for the Hugo Award for Best Novel for his novel, BLIND FAITH, although he warns me that it's more of a thriller and the speculative content is minimal. He is eligible for the Hugo Award for Best Novelette for "On the Rock" (published in Albedo One), and he is also eligible for the Hugo Award for Best Short Story for "Just Another Day" (published in KILLERS, September 2008).
  4. Ted Kosmatka is eligible for the Hugo Award for Best Novelette for "The Art of Alchemy" (published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, June 2008) and for "Divining Light" (published in Asimov's Science Fiction, August 2008). He is also eligible for the Hugo Award for Best Short Story for "N-words" (published in SEEDS OF CHANGE, August 2008).
  5. Nathalie Mallet is eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. This is her second year of eligibility.
  6. David J. Williams is eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. This is his first year of eligibility. His novel, THE MIRRORED HEAVENS, is eligible for the Hugo Award for Best Novel.

No, no congrats until someone actually wins an award, Ryan. =)

"Congratulations!" was my first response as well ^_^ Suppose I'll rephrase that to "I'm so happy for all of you!"
