Keep in mind the Eugie Foster Memorial Award for Short Fiction. Matthew M. Foster announces:
We are active again and will present the award at the Awards Banquet at Dragon Con. We are currently receiving nominations from editors and publishers of professional publications. We are interested in connecting up with a few additional reviewers to make sure we are covering the anthology and non-traditional publishing markets.
Eligible works are original speculative short fiction stories no longer than 20,000 words published for the first time in the English language in the previous year (2016).
This is a juried award, that begins with a long list of nominations coming from publishers and editors, supplemented by choices of select readers. A selection committee of spec fiction fans picks the finalists. The winner is chosen by a panel of judges.
Individuals who are interested in becoming reviewers for the award can reach Foster at email@example.com, which is used for all award communication.
