Exploring Science-Fiction & Fantasy Creators From Marginalised Genders

By: cloakedcreators | July 15, 2019

And so we come to the finalists for this year:


Best Fantasy Novel:

The Poppy War by RF Kuang

The Loosening Skin by Aliya Whiteley


In here there was one clear front runner and then a fight over the second slot. Will definitely be interesting to see what happens in the head to head


Best Science Fiction Novel:

I Still Dream by James Smythe

Rosewater by Tade Thompson

Space Opera by Catherynne M Valente


One round where a lot of different championing from the different judges with no clear front runner and every nominee getting at least one mention


Best Blurred Boundaries Novel:

The Mere Wife by Maria Dahvana Headley

The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas

Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse


As with science fiction this was a hotly contested round where there was even debate over whether we should have 3 nominees. But in the end we couldn't leave  one of these three out


Best Novella:

The Tea Master and the Detective by Aliette de Bodard

Prime Meridian by Silvia Moreno-Garcia


These two were way ahead of the other nominees and it is going to be a tough battle with these facing off against each other


Best Series:

Machineries of War  by Yoon Ha Lee

Fractured Europe by Dave Hutchinson
