The finalists for the 2017 Hugo Awards have been released! As I’ve mentioned before, if you’re interested in some of the best new science fiction today, or you’re looking to pad your reading list, the Hugo roster is a great place to start.

You can find some links to the nominated stories at Locus Online. For more on the list and the rule changes for this year’s award (including the new Best Series category), check out this column at Book Riot or this post on the WSFS updates. If you’re interested in voting for any of this fine fiction to win a Hugo, you’ll need an active membership to Worldcon 75.

Tor.com and Uncanny are killing it this year. The Locus list is light on short fiction links, so have a few (mostly free) links to the shorter works:

Best Novelette

Best Short Story

I do love a full To Read list. Enjoy!

Today’s free fiction selection is Elizabeth Bear’s “And the Balance in Blood,” from the November/December 2015 issue of Uncanny.

Bear writes both novels and terrific, frequently magical shorts.* (“Tideline,” a 2008 Hugo award-winner from Asimov’s Science Fiction, holds a special place in my heart, but the text version isn’t freely available [audio link at Escape Pod].)

If you’re curious about Bear’s other works or where to start with her (many) series, check out Tor.com’s helpful article Where To Start with the Work of Elizabeth Bear.

Enjoy!

* Also, what a great pen name. Makes me want to write as Jennifer Okapi or Swan or Fossa:)
