Amazing results (and a great reading list) from the Locus Poll: Storyteller by Kate Wilhelm is a Locus Awards Finalist for Best Non-Fiction and Kelly Link is a finalist for Best Novella (“Magic for Beginners“), Best Short Story (“Some Zombie Contingency Plans”), and Best Collection (Magic for Beginners) — thank you to everyone who voted.
The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror Eighteen is also a finalist for Best Anthology, yay! The latest edition is going into galleys and will be out in July. Updated the pages for the 17th and 18th editions and added the Table of Contents for the 19th edition (only in alpha order as yet).
It’s a ballot that leans heavily toward male writers. Maybe someone (hello, Broad Universe) will go check out the historical gender breakdown of the finalists and winners and then we can continue the conversation which starts with “What’s up with that?”
