Aurora Award nominations now open

Nominations are now open for this year's Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Awards (the Auroras). Any Canadian may nominate, and there's no charge to do so.

The ballot, in PDF format, is here.

And more info about the awards is here.

I confess to having Aurora hopes for my novel Mindscan (in the Long-Form English category) and for my novella "Identity Theft" (in the Short-Form English category).

If you're a potential Aurora nominator, you can find the full text of "Identity Theft" here: (as an Acrobat file) (as a Word document)

Thanks for pointing this out. I just finished filling out the ballot. I nominated you, Robert Charles Wilson and Cory Doctorow in long form, and your "Identity Theft" in short form.

Thank you, John! I haven't read the Doctorow, but Robert Charles Wilson's Spin is unquestionably one of the great books of 2005.

Good luck with the award! I'd vote for you. Spin was a great book too.

I should also thank you for allowing me to discover Robert Charles Wilson in the first place! It was your account of the "Rob and Bob" tour that got me curious about his work. After reading Spin, I went out and got a copy of Blind Lake. Now I plan to work my way through the rest of his stuff.
