Locus Index to Science Fiction Awards

Mark R. Kelly has just posted the annual update to his monumental Locus Index to Science Fiction Awards, a huge database listing award wins and nominations for awards major and minor; it’s really an amazing piece of work, and must have taken an awful lot of time and effort to compile.

The summary page about yours truly is here, and you can see how I’m doing compared to other writers here. Mark shows me as having 87 nominations and 30 wins.

(I actually — cough, cough — have more award nominations and wins than that, since Mark’s tally only lists science-fiction awards, and not such things as the Arthur Ellis Award from the Crime Writers of Canada, which I’ve won once and been nominated for three times, the Ryerson University Alumni Award of Distinction, the $1,000 Mississauga Established Literary Artist Award, and so on; my own tally is 98 nominations and 38 wins — not that anyone’s counting …)

Anyway, Mark’s index is a lot of fun to poke around in, and, I’m sure, a very useful tool for librarians, researchers, and readers.
