Are you eligible to nominate an author for the Campbell award? Or are you just looking for some great free fiction?
Either way, I hope you’ll download the 2014 Campbellian Anthology.
The John W. Campbell award is given out each year during the Hugo Awards, honoring the best new writer in science fiction and fantasy. Like the Hugos, nomination and voting is open to those who have bought admission for this year’s WorldCon, next year’s WorldCon, those who attended last year’s WorldCon, and those who have bought supporting memberships.
This anthology was created in order to make sure those who could nominate were aware of as many nominees and their work as possible. I, like many others, am proud to be represented in the showcase. The collection is massive– comprised of hundreds of thousands of words of free fiction. Most of the stories and excerpts were previously published at professional and highly acclaimed venues.
So, check it out! It’s only available for a limited time.
