Philip K. Dick Award Shortlist

By / January 20, 2017 / no comments

It barely seems like yesterday that we were announcing the last sf awards of 2016, and now here we are with the first sf awards of 2017. The Philip K. Dick Award is for a “distinguished original science fiction paperback” first published in 2016, and the shortlist is:

Consider (The Holo Series)   Hwarhath Stories: Transgressive Tales by Aliens   The Mercy Journals

Consider by Kristy Acevedo (Jolly Fish Press)
Hwarhath Stories: Transgressive Tales by Aliens by Eleanor Arnason (Aqueduct Press)
The Mercy Journals by Claudia Casper (Arsenal Pulp Press)
Graft by Matt Hill (Angry Robot)
Unpronounceable by Susan diRende (Aqueduct Press)
Super Extra Grande by Yoss, translated by David Frye (Restless Books)

Graft   Unpronounceable   Super Extra Grande

An interesting list, particularly given that most of these books (the notable exception being Eleanor Arnason’s collection) have not been the focus of a huge amount of attention within the sf world, so this shortlist opens up some fascinating new directions for us.

The award will be presented at Norwescon in April.
