I haven’t received any Best Editor (Long Form) recommendations, which isn’t surprising since that is a category that is difficult for readers rather than industry insiders to get a firm grasp on. But if anyone has anything, definitely let me know!
Below are some Best Related Work recommendations that came in. Next, please submit recommendations for Best Graphic Story and Best Fancast! I will get any that I received posted this weekend. Thanks!
Downfall, by Caroline Hobbs – Downfall is a fascinating story game of inventing a society, flourishing but flawed, and then playing out its total collapse. It’s a tragic, powerful game which is all about speculation, extrapolation, and asking what our society can be.
Invisible 2: Personal Essays on Representation in SF/F – More than pushing a message or trying to persuade readers, these essays present complex human beings sharing their personal experiences.
Letters to Tiptree – A multi-faceted exploration of the legacy of “James Tiptree Jr.”, by the writers who were influenced by her.
Thing Explainer – Randall Munroe of xkcd explains complex ideas in really excessively simple language.
Wheel of Time Companion – a mammoth concordance of facts about the universe and characters of the late Robert Jordan’s epic fantasy series, edited and assembled by Harriet McDougal, Alan Romanczuk, and Maria Simons. It’s a labor of love, and everything one could possibly want to know about Jordan’s universe is in there.
You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) (scroll down) – Felicia Day’s delightful look at her life.
