The 2016 Locus Awards Finalists have been posted at Locus Online.
There is considerable overlap with the Vox Day’s slate for this award due to the slate having included a lot of frontrunners. Altogether, 26 of the 75 items on the Locus Awards shortlist also appeared on Day’s slate. The slate scored zero in the Best Short Story (no Chuck Tingle!), Best Nonfiction Book, and Best Editor categories. However, there’s no way of knowing whether editorial judgment was exercised on the finalists.
In the Magazine category, File 770 was nominated along with Asimov’s, Clarkesworld, F&SF, and Tor.com. Make of that what you will.
The winners will be announced during the Locus Awards Weekend in Seattle WA, June 24-26.
