9 thoughts on “2015 Asimov’s and Analog Awards

  1. Once again, my tastes have little overlap with* the overall Asimov’s readership.

    “Tuesdays” by Suzanne Palmer is the only winning story that got my top spot.

  2. I only read the one Analog issue but I thought “The Museum of Modern Warfare” was very good.

  3. @Soon Lee: Likewise, although the Swanwick story did contain one line that I hope to use in conversation some day: “Why, you’re nothing but a common fish wizard!”

  4. It would be nice if Analog put their finalists online for readers the way that Asimov’s does. Perhaps some of them will show up in anthologies, and I will get to read them that way.

  5. I don’t think anything I voted for in Asimovs won, and I hadn’t read enough Analog to feel like voting, but both Ruschs are good stories.

    Also, although I’m still amazed that “The Citadel of Weeping Pearls” didn’t make it, at least its cover art won!

  6. Mark: Also, although I’m still amazed that “The Citadel of Weeping Pearls” didn’t make it, at least its cover art won!

    I think that cover art is stunning, as well as perfect for the story, and I’m glad it won.

  7. I nominated Mauricio Manzieri for best pro artist Hugo. Museum of Modern Warfare was on my short list but I don’t remember if I actually nominated it. Nothing I nominated made it to finalist – something that I am sure is true of many others here.

    Congratulations to all the winners!
