Nothing Without Us and The Stealth Lovers can be nominated for the 2020 Prix Aurora Awards!

It’s that time of year again, when members of the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association (CSFFA) can nominate eligible works to be on the voting ballot for the Prix Aurora Awards. The Prix Aurora Awards are a big deal for Canadian speculative fiction creatives. Getting on the ballot means the work becomes a Prix Aurora Award finalist, and that alone is pretty darned cool.

So, from March 1 until April 18, 2020, you can nominate your favourites in each category!

My two works are:

  • The Stealth Lovers (a queer romance military space opera), listed in the Best Novel category.
  • Nothing Without Us, edited by Talia C. Johnson and me (an own-voices, multi-genre anthology where the authors and their protagonists identify as disabled, Deaf, neurodiverse, and/or they manage mental illness), listed in the Best Related Work category.
ID, book cover: Two Draga warriors in space flight suits about to engage in a kiss while standing on a snowy mountain top. Overhead flies a space fighter.
ID, book cover: Graffiti wall with “Nothing Without Us” spray painted in black. The list of editors and authors is included in the text of this page.

Note: In the Best Related Work category, there is another book with a similar title to our anthology, so if you wish to nominate Nothing Without Us, please make sure it’s the one edited by Cait Gordon and Talia C. Johnson.

To all the creatives eligible for nominations (and I see quite a few from authors I know), best of luck! Honestly, we’re all winners because we did a thing with words!

If you are a Canadian citizen or resident and would like to become a member of the CSFFA, if I’m not mistaken, you can join anytime. And it’s only 10$ a year! Here’s more information about this from the CSFFA website.
