The World Science Fiction Conventio, aka WorldCon, (which I swear I will get to someday, like maybe next year since it's in Spokane) is where the Hugo Awards are given out. If you read much F/SF at all you've probably heard of the Hugos -- they're basically the equivalent of the Academy Awards for science fiction and fantasy. There are Hugos for Best Novel, Best Novelette, Best Professional Editor, etc. (Fic writers note: there are also Hugos for Best Fan Artist, Fan Writer, and Fancast!!).

WorldCon is also where the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer is bestowed. And now, you can read over a hundred stories eligible for the Campbell Award FOR FREE. Some brilliant person has compiled them all into The 2014 Campbellian Anthology.

I am soooooo excited!!

"A little over a year ago, a small group of us had a crazy idea. What if, we said, there was a way everyone eligible for the Campbell could publicize their work at the same time, so that readers might have some idea of who we are?...The volume you now hold in your hands...includes a multitude of works from 111 contributors, spanning more than 860,000 words..."

On a semi-related note, if any of you have a novel sitting around gathering dust (*koff*anna_bird*koff*), there's a new publisher in town and they're looking for submissions: Story Spring Publishing, click on "Submissions." Go ye and submit!
