2016 John W. Campbell Award for New Writer

When looking at getting 15-20 threads going each week, I decided to take a different approach and instead do a single discussion thread for each category. Sorry this is coming up on Wednesday, but let’s start discussion these fine writers!

Since it is early in the process and we don’t have voter packets yet, if anyone is familiar with any of their qualifying work, it would be great to hear about it so that the rest of us can hunt it down and get familiar with it. I definitely see a high chance of thread necromancy towards the end of the voting period for this one (which is why I included right at the beginning).

As always, keep in mind the Comment Rules, and let’s get to discussing this year’s Hugo finalists!
