Awake in the Nightland
Big Boys Don't Cry
Throne of Bones

I second the nomination for Col. Kratman's Big Boys Don't Cry for short story.

That story just about made this big boy cry...

Huh. I was thinking everyone hated you. You're confusing,

Perhaps, we should consult Nate. And, Josh, very soon after.

Would Sci Phi Journal #1 be appropriate for best related work?

Certainly.

Can you nominate a book that was only released as an ebook?

Anonymous MrGreenMan January 25, 2015 1:57 PM  

And, two more questions, since I'm a new fan for all of this and I cannot abide the idea of puppies being sad somewhere:

- Is JartStar eligible for the professional or fan artist?
- Do you, VD, count yet as either the short or long form editor category?

Anonymous Dr. J January 25, 2015 2:08 PM  

AODL #2, but alas, it wasn't published in 2014.

Awake in the Night Land, QM (was that 2014?), Monster Hunters: Nemesis, Book of Feasts and Seasons (the ghost story - for Easter I think)

Professional.

Do you, VD, count yet as either the short or long form editor category?

Both.

Yes.

Taking from my suggestions on the Sad Puppies thread

Judge of Ages, by John C. Wright, Best Novel
Ark Royal, by Chris Nuttal, Best Novel

Jason Rennie, editor of Sci Phi Journal #1 and #2, short form (If not eligible, Sci Phi Journal for Related Work)
Vox Day and Tom Kratman, editors of Riding the Red Horse, short form

Toni Weisskopf, editor, long form

Sci Phi Show, Jason Rennie, whatever level of fan/pro/related works it meets the eligibility requirements.

“Sixth of the Dusk”, Brandon Sanderson, Novella

“Domo”, Joshua M. Young (Not sure if this is a short story or novelette)
“They Also Serve”, by Tedd Roberts Short Story
“The Keeper of Names”, by Larry Correia. Short Story

THE HOT EQUATIONS: THERMODYNAMICS AND MILITARY SF by Ken Burnside. Related Works (I really recommend this. Besides, it would be nice for something actually dealing with the questions of hard sf to be nominated instead of women's studies papers and Doctor Who squee.)

@Jartstar, Awake has two different covers, red and blue. Need to choose which one is represented.

No, the award is for the artist, not the work.

Anonymous Polish January 25, 2015 4:51 PM  

Best Novel: The Judge Of Ages

Best Novella/Novelette: not sure, so instead I'll nominate 2 for
Best Short Story:
Queen of the Tyrant Lizards
Break! Break! Break!

I agree with the previously posted
Best Related Work: The Hot Equations: Thermodynamics and Military SF

Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form: The Quantum Tree

Thanks, guys, not interested.

Best Novel: Soumission by Michel Houellebecq

Kratman: "Thanks, guys, not interested."

Figures the Yankee would Sherman out on us.

Blogger Tom Kratman January 25, 2015 10:05 PM  

You mean I get to burn the next worldcon to the ground? Now _that_ I might be interested in.

But for the Hugo? I see no value in it. I see a minimum value, at least, in spurning and shitting on it. I was, one year prior, willing to take one for the team but, for this year, at least, and probably for future years, as well, I am not.

Best Novella: Phyl-Undhu by Nick Land.
By a mile.

Anonymous Alexander January 26, 2015 11:28 AM  

Well blast.

Frankly I can't think of a better work to give a lefty an aneurysm. But I will respect the request and not nominate the work.

Blogger Tom Kratman January 26, 2015 11:33 AM  

It's not a request exactly, more an observation. But there may well be people who do care, who can use your votes.
