Two F&SF Stories On 2015 Sturgeon List

Theodore SturgeonOn May 11, the finalists for the 2015 Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award for best short SF of 2014 were announced by The Gunn Center for the Study of Science Fiction. This year’s list includes two stories from F&SF, “In Her Eyes” by Seth Chambers (Jan/Feb 2014) and “The Lightness of the Movement” by Pat MacEwan (Mar/Apr 2014).

Both “In Her Eyes” by Seth Chambers and “The Lightness of the Movement” by Pat MacEwan were also named 2014 James Tiptree Jr. Awards Honors stories.

The annual award honors short fiction in the spirit of Theodore Sturgeon, who was closely identified with the Golden Age of Science Fiction. Sturgeon is famous for his novel More Than Human, his book reviews, and the episodes he wrote for the original Star Trek series. But he is best known for the more than 200 stories he wrote.

Sturgeon’s frequently reprinted story “The Hurkle is a Happy Beast” was published in Fall 1949 in the first issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and then selected for inclusion in The Best Science Fiction Stories: 1950. With its second issue, the new periodical changed its name to The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Sturgeon published more than a dozen stories in F&SF between the first issue and 1983, including 1960 Hugo finalist “The Man Who Lost the Sea,” 1963 Hugo finalist for novella “When You Care, When You Love,” and 1969 Nebula finalist “The Man Who Learned Loving.”

The Sturgeon Memorial Award is selected by a jury that consists of Elizabeth Bear, Andy Duncan, James Gunn, Kij Johnson, and Nöel Sturgeon, Trustee of the Theodore Sturgeon Literary Estate. A complete list of this year’s finalists may be found at http://www.sfcenter.ku.edu/sturgeon-finalists.htm. The awards will be presented during the Campbell Conference on Friday, June 12, as part of the Campbell Conference held annually at the University of Kansas in Lawrence.

Fantasy & Science Fiction, May/June 2014On May 7, the finalists for the 2014 Shirley Jackson Awards were announced and they include “The Fisher Queen” by Alyssa Wong from the May/June issue of F&SF.

“The Fisher Queen” is also a finalist for this year’s Nebula Award for short story, which will be announced in Chicago in June.

The Shirley Jackson Awards are given in recognition of the legacy of Shirley Jackson’s writing, for outstanding achievement in the literature of psychological suspense, horror, and the dark fantastic. They’re voted upon by a jury of professional writers, editors, critics, and academics.

Shirley Jackson was a contributor to F&SF in the 1950s with her stories “One Ordinary Day, With Peanuts” (January 1955), “The Missing Girl” (December 1957), and “The Omen” (March 1958). Jackson, who lived from 1916 to 1965, wrote such classic novels as The Haunting of Hill House and We Have Always Lived in the Castle, and is famous for her story “The Lottery.” Her work continues to be a major influence on writers of genre and literary fiction.

The 2014 Shirley Jackson Awards will be presented on Sunday, July 12, 2016, at Readercon 26, Conference on Imaginative Literature, in Burlington, Massachusetts.
