With 2016 almost done, the SFF community is already gearing up for the 2017 awards season. To assist with the nominating process, I thought I’d share a list of works I’ve reviewed that are eligible.

Ditmar Awards

The Ditmars are Australia’s popularly-voted award for SFF. Traditionally, they’re presented at NatCon. In 2017 that will be Continuum 13, held in Melbourne on 9-12 June.

Works I’ve reviewed that are eligible for the Ditmars:

Best Novel

Aurora: Decima by Amanda Bridgeman
Captive by Amanda Pillar
Den of Wolves by Juliet Marillier
Flameout by Keri Arthur
In the Devil’s Nebula
 by Anna Hackett
Kings Rising by C.S. Pacat
The Lyre Thief by Jennifer Fallon
Survivor by Amanda Pillar
Vigil by Angela Slatter
Who’s Afraid? by Maria Lewis
The Wizardry of Jewish Women by Gillian Polack

Best Collected Work

Defying Doomsday edited by Tsana Dolichva and Holly Kench

More eligible material can be found on my Goodreads shelf for the Aurealis awards and I am also eligible for Best Fan Writer for these reviews.

Nebula Awards

The Nebulas are a set of awards presented by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Works do not have to be written by members in order to be eligible but only active members may nominate and participate in the voting process. Works must also have been published in the US to be eligible. So, if you’re a SFWA member planning to nominate any of these works, please double-check their US publication beforehand.

In addition to the material above, the following works I’ve reviewed are potentially eligible for the Nebulas:

Best Novel

A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers
Jonathan Dark or the Evidence of Ghosts by A.K. Benedict
A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet
Rag and Bone by K.J. Charles
Summerlong by Peter S. Beagle

Andre Norton Award for Best Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy

Memories of Ash by Intisar Khanani
Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige
Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

Happy voting, everyone! If you have recommendations (particularly for short stories), I’d love to hear them!
