    I've started this topic to match the one for last year's stories. Even though the topic title says awards, for the last two years it's been a repository of news about Year's Best reprints and awards. (Unsurprisingly, these categories sometimes overlap.)

    The table of contents for Rich Horton's THE YEAR's BEST SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY 2017 has been announced, and this year it includes three stories from F&SF:

    “Red of Tooth and Cog” by Cat Rambo, F&SF (March/April)
    “The Vanishing Kind” by Lavie Tidhar, F&SF (July/August)
    “A Fine Balance” by Charlotte Ashley, F&SF (November/December)

    The full list can be found on Horton's Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/rich.horton.16/posts/1194026600643057

    Horton's one of the better anthologists, in my view.

    Congratulations to the authors!

    Gardner's facebook posts are not public, though. Can someone copy and paste that TOC, or is it available elsewhere?

    Whoops. I have 2017 issues on the brain! Of course, the Nebula nominees were published in 2016. Thanks to Piet Nel for pointing out my error.

    Congrats! I hope the Murphy wins - I recommended it when I reviewed that issue[1], along with the Schrock. As far as the Rambo, I thought it was fine but not quite "rec" level. That said, it is my favorite of the four novelette nominees I have read (I haven't read the Ledbetter), so I guess I hope it wins that, too.

    [1] And, as I've said elsewhere, we need more "diversity" in novella publishing. Tor seems to have an unhealthy stranglehold on the category. Hopefully one good side effect of the worrisome drop to bimonthly of all the printzines will be getting them back in the novella game.

    And speaking of diversity, again, congrats to you but, regarding the SFWA, I find it hard to believe nothing from Analog, Asimov's, or Interzone was worth nominating, such as Karl Bunker's "They Have All One Breath."

    Oops. Sorry for F&SF as well as Rambo, but her story was miscategorized and has been withdrawn.

    J-Sun: I was just coming here to link to that announcement, so thank you for getting it in ahead of me. We're sad that Cat's story won't represent F&SF on the final ballot, but we think it was the right decision and we're glad for the other authors involved in both the novelette and short story categories.

    Speaking of awards, the 2017 edition of the Campbell nominees anthology is available free until July:
    http://dl.bookfunnel.com/c7adzdd31h

    Seems like this anthology is becoming an annual event, and a free download for several months after its release, so perhaps worthwhile adding to your calendar and Googling for it in January each year.

    Geoff, thanks for linking to the Event Horizon anthology. It includes three stories from F&SF by authors who are eligible to be nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer this year:

    Last One Out (F&SF, Jul/Aug 2016) by K. B. Rylander
    Smooth Stones and Empty Bones (F&SF, Jan/Feb 2016) by Bennett North
    A Fine Balance (F&SF, Nov/Dec 2016) by Charlotte Ashley

    Charlotte Ashley has published a couple other stories in F&SF and has more on the way. Bennet North's debut was her first published story.

    There are also several other writers in the anthology with connections to F&SF:

    Aimee Ogden -- her poem "The Dragon" appeared in F&SF, Sept/Oct 2016
    Wole Talabi -- his story "The Regression Test" appeared in F&SF, Jan/Feb 2017
    G.V. Anderson -- her story "I Am Not I" is coming up in the Jul/Aug issue

    So I'm glad that we're able to continue the F&SF tradition of publishing the best writing by new authors alongside the established figures of the field. It would be great to see any of these authors on the Campbell ballot this year.
