Work I’ve Created

I am eligible for fan writing categories for these reviews.

The Skiffy and Fanty Show, where I write reviews and conduct interviews, is eligible for the Hugos in the categories of Best Fanzine and Best Fancast. My fellow reviewers are also eligible for Best Fan Writer.

My story New Berth, published in Mother of Invention, is eligible for Best Short Story, with the anthology eligible for the Ditmars in Best Collected Work. Since the story is my first pro sale, I get to take a crack at the Campbell Award, as well.

Happy nominating, everyone! If you have recommendations, I’d love to hear them!

    Hi there. You also reviewed MURDER ON THE TITANIA AND OTHER STEAM-POWERED ADVENTURES by Alex Acks, which includes “The Flying Turk.” This story is eligible for novella awards like the Nebulas and Hugos (other stories in the collection are reprints). Thanks again!

      Oh, you’re right! I need to find a better way of tracking eligible stories from anthologies. I shall add the story to the list.
