The Sidewise Awards have been presented annually since 1995 to recognize excellence in alternate historical fiction.
The winners will be announced at ReConStruction, this year’s NASFiC, in Raleigh, North Carolina during the weekend of August 5. Steven H Silver indicates in the press release that the lone nominee in the Long Form category doesn’t automatically take the award because it is still subject to a final vote by the judges in which “No Award” is an option.
This year’s nominees were selected by panel of judges was made up of Stephen Baxter, Evelyn Leeper, Jim Rittenhouse, Stu Shiffman, Kurt Sidaway, and Steven H Silver.
