My short-story collection Identity Theft and Other Stories from Red Deer Press is currently one of five finalists for the Aurora Award for Best Long Form Work in English.

In honour of that, I’m pleased to offer the Hugo and Nebula Award-nominated title novella, “Identity Theft,” for free during the remainder of the voting period. You can read it right here.

All of the other nominees in this category are excellent, too — and three of them are by my writing students:

  • Impossibilia, Douglas Smith (PS Publishing)
  • Defining Diana, Hayden Trenholm (Bundoran Press)
  • Marseguro, Edward Willett (DAW Books)

So, one way or another, the odds are great that I’m going to be a happy man on Friday, August 7, 2009, when the Aurora Awards are presented at a banquet at this year’s World Science Fiction Convention in Montreal.

Praise for Identity Theft and Other Stories:

“At every opportunity, Sawyer forces his readers to think while holding their attention with ingenious premises and superlative craftsmanship.” —Booklist

“A collection of great stories; highly entertaining and thought-provoking. This book has something for almost any science-fiction fan.” —Quill & Quire
