Looking for More Short Fiction Suggestions

Hey y’all. Fancast, Fanzine, and Fan Writer are all getting appropriate amounts of love in the shortlists this year. BUT THE SHORT FICTION CATEGORIES DESERVE MORE. Please give me your recommendations for the best Pulp Revolution short fiction of 2016. And if somebody groks the Hugos, please let me know if the suggestions are eligible and are in the right slot. WARNING: I did not ask permission to do this!

P. Alexander reminds us of the Cirsova eligibility post.

Jon Mollison suggests “Athan and the Princess” from Schuyler Hernstrom’s collection Thune’s Vision, though Alex prefers “Saga of Adalwulf”.

Misha Burnette’s “Hill of Stars” is another favorite.

Current lists of stories that I know of right off are the Planetary Awards, Sad Pookas, and Rabid Puppies… but I want MOAR!!!

Please mention your favorites in the comments here.

    Worth noting that Athan and the Priestess and Saga of Adalwulf are short and novella respectively, so you can put both on your ballot without reservation if you want to go all-out Hernstrom.

    If you haven’t already, you should definitely check out the first issue of Skelos (The Journal of Weird Fiction and Dark Fantasy!) – I found Charles Gramlich’s “Hungry” was particularly memorable.
