2019 Chesley Award Finalists

The 2019 Chesley Award Finalists have been announced and I am very pleased to see Clarkesworld artists Sean Andrew Murray (“The Storkfriars”) and Arthur Haas (“Meeting”) on the ballot for Best Magazine Illustration.

I am also very honored to be a finalist for Best Art Director.

Thank you ASFA and congratulations to all the finalists!

2019 Kate Wilhelm Solstice Award

Saturday night I received SFWA’s Kate Wilhelm Solstice Award for distinguished contributions to the science fiction and fantasy community. I’m much too tired to go into details at the moment, but I had a wonderful time at the conference and definitely won’t be forgetting that night anytime soon.

Lisa took a few pictures when I got home:

The award is made by Mike Libby.

2019 Nebula Conference

Tomorrow morning I’m boarding a flight for LA and going to the SFWA Nebula Conference. I’ll be on the following panels on Friday:

  • 10:00-11:00 – Short Fiction Contract
  • 3:30-4:30 – Navigating as “Gatekeepers” of Publishing

and participating in the mass signing event from 1:30-3:30 on Saturday.

I’m also going to be receiving a Kate Wilhelm Solstice Award for “for distinguished contributions to the science fiction and fantasy community” at the Nebula Awards ceremony on Saturday night. I’m still trying to wrap my head around that one. It’s quite an honor and a bit overwhelming. I’d also like to congratulate Nisi Shawl, who will also be receiving a Solstice Award this year. Sadly, she’ll be unable to attend.

2019 Locus Award Finalists
