It's time for the annual award pimpage post. (Well, the Nebulas work differently, but you know what I mean.) Here's my list of my own favorites of my eligible work from 2008, for your consideration as you contemplate nominations for Hugos, Nebulas and World Fantasy Awards.


Escapement, Tor Books, June, 2008, ed. Beth Meacham


"America, Such as She Is", Alembical, November, 2008, Paper Golem Press, ed. Lawrence M. Schoen and Arthur Dorrance

Short Story

"The Sky That Wraps the World Round, Past the Blue and into the Black", Clarkesworld, March, 2008

"A Water Matter", Tor.com, October, 2008

Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form

METAtropolis, Audible.com, October, 2008, ed. John Scalzi (audio book [iTunes], written by Tobias Buckell, Elizabeth Bear, Jay Lake, John Scalzi and Karl Schroeder; read by Scott Brick, Michael Hogan, Alessandro Juliani, Kandyse McClure and Stefan Rudnicki)

Best Fan Writer

If you are interested in nominating me and my blog for this category, feel free. I don't consider myself a Fan Writer in that sense, but I don't feel a need to bow out of the category either.

ETA: Post edited to cope with a Hugo eligibility issue. Also, inexplicably, the first version of this post listed Mainspring when it should have read Escapement. My thanks to katster for the catch.

Jay? Dumb question, but I thought Mainspring came out in 2007 and it was Escapement that came out in 2008. (I think I might have even nominated Mainspring on my Denvention nominations.)

Did I mess something up?

I don't think I'm eligible to vote for anything, but "The Sky That Wraps the World Round, Past the Blue and into the Black" is certainly the best story I read in 2008.
