After the withdrawal of Lines of Departure by Marko Kloos from the Novel category, and “Goodnight Stars” by Annie Bellet from the Short Story category, Sasquan has now announced the works that will take their place.
The new book on the Best Novel ballot is The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu, translated by Ken Liu. The novel was first published in China in 2008, but this is the first English Language edition, which makes it eligible for the award.
The new work on the Best Short Story ballot is “A Single Samurai” by Steven Diamond (The Baen Big Book of Monsters, Baen Books).
From Nebula and Hugo Award–nominated Carolyn Ives Gilman comes Dark Orbit, a compelling novel featuring alien contact, mystery, and murder.
Reports of a strange, new habitable planet have reached the Twenty Planets of human civilization. When a team of scientists is assembled to investigate this world, exoethnologist Sara Callicot is recruited to keep an eye on an unstable crewmate.
