Voting for FIYAH magazine’s IGNYTE awards closes on September 11. That’s just enough time to cover at least one maybe two of the shorter fiction categories.
I’m going to start with Short Story.
The finalists are:
- Ten Excerpts from an Annotated Bibliography on the Cannibal Women of Ratnabar Island – Nibedita Sen for Nightmare Magazine [My review]
- Dune Song – Suyi Davies Okungbowa for Apex Magazine
- And Now His Lordship is Laughing – Shiv Ramdas for Strange Horizons [My review]
- Canst Thou Draw Out the Leviathan – Christopher Caldwell for Uncanny Magazine
- A Brief Lesson in Native American Astronomy – Rebecca Roanhorse for Mythic Dream
I’ve read two of these and so I’ll lead off in a subsequent post with Suyi Davies Okungbowa post-apocalyptic Dune Song.
