The shortlist for the 2022 Eugie Foster Memorial Award for Short Fiction was revealed on June 30.
The Eugie Award “honors stories that are irreplaceable, that inspire, enlighten, and entertain.”
We will be looking for stories that are beautiful, thoughtful, and passionate, and change us and the field. The recipient is a story that is unique and will become essential to speculative fiction readers.
The finalists for the 2022 Eugie Award are:
- “Colors of the Immortal Palette” by Caroline M. Yoachim (Uncanny Magazine)
- “A Flower Cannot Love the Hand” by Aimee Ogden (Beneath Ceaseless Skies)
- “L’Esprit de L’Escalier” by Catherynne M. Valente (Tor.com)
- “A Tableau of Things That Are” by Adam-Troy Castro (Lightspeed Magazine)
- “Where Oaken Hearts Do Gather” by Sarah Pinsker (Uncanny Magazine)
This is a juried award, that begins with a longlist 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, and receives a plaque and a $1000 prize. All finalists receive a pin.
This annual award is presented at Dragon Con.
