Firstly this post is an excuse to steal from JJ’s ever useful File 770 post: http://file770.com/where-to-find-the-2019-hugo-award-finalists-for-free-online/ I’ve copied from there the list with links of the Short Story finalists and added links to my review when I have one:
- “The Court Magician” by Sarah Pinsker (Lightspeed, January 2018) [my review]
- “The Rose MacGregor Drinking and Admiration Society” by T. Kingfisher (Uncanny Magazine 25, November-December 2018)
- “The Secret Lives of the Nine Negro Teeth of George Washington” by P. Djèlí Clark (Fireside Magazine, February 2018) [my review]
- “STET” by Sarah Gailey (Fireside Magazine, October 2018) [my review]
- “The Tale of the Three Beautiful Raptor Sisters, and the Prince Who Was Made of Meat” by Brooke Bolander (Uncanny Magazine 23, July-August 2018)
- “A Witch’s Guide to Escape: A Practical Compendium of Portal Fantasies” by Alix E. Harrow (Apex Magazine, February 2018) [my review]
And wouldn’t you know but I’ve actual read and reviewed four out of the six finalists! Three of the finalists I reviewed as Nebula Finalists and separately I reviewed (or gushed about) Sarah Gailey’s STET from Fireside.
That only leaves “The Rose MacGregor Drinking and Admiration Society” by T. Kingfisher and “The Tale of the Three Beautiful Raptor Sisters, and the Prince Who Was Made of Meat” by Brooke Bolander. I’ll post review of these today and tomorrow and an overview post later in the week.
Next week and the week after I’m off on a secret mission to high places, so the blog will be shuttered and the keys carefully hidden so nobody takes it over in my absence.
