Science Fiction & Fantasy Awards Round-Up 2014

It’s April so it must be time for another SF/Fantasy Awards Round-Up.  Below are the nominees (and one winner + nominees) of what we think of as the Big Four.  I’ve not included nominees for the Retro Hugos; I hope you’ll forgive me…

Winners will be announced in future Bookbits (and then edited in here).  Our Tiemen will be chuffed that his favorite read from 2013 is featured on every list!

Also, congratulations to Thomas Olde Heuvelt, who has been nominated for a Hugo for his short story “The Ink Readers of Doi Saket.”  That’s twice now in two years!  Fantastic!
