Nominees for the 2017 World Fantasy Awards are out and the list doesn’t hold many surprises though it seems Tor.com has cornered the long fiction category. The anthology category is missing Nightscript II, which was my favorite this year, but I look forward to checking out the ones listed. Below are the short fiction nominees, including a couple of favorites already reviewed here for other awards — Brooke Bolander’s wild Harpy ride and Amal El-Mohtar’s sweetly rebuilt fairytale.
- “Das Steingeschöpf,” G.V. Anderson (Strange Horizons 12/12/16)
- “Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies,” Brooke Bolander (Uncanny 11-12/16)
- “Seasons of Glass and Iron,” Amal El-Mohtar (The Starlit Wood)
- “Little Widow,” Maria Dahvana Headley (Nightmare 9/16)
- “The Fall Shall Further the Flight in Me,” Rachael K. Jones (Clockwork Phoenix 5)
