So, this is my first year of eligibility for the Hugos and Nebulas (!!!). Below, you can find a link to the stories in full. I’ve also included some of my favorite short stories of the year.
“The Star Maiden” in Shimmer Magazine, which was a retelling of a Filipino folklore and a story about the fraught, but loving, experiences of two generations. “The Star Maiden” is currently on the longlist for the BFSA.
“The Wives of Azhar” in Strange Horizons, which was a retelling of the Bluebeard tale from the perspective of his wives.
And since it’s my first year of publication, I’m also eligible for the John W. Campbell Award!
