Award-eligible 2019 Stories From Mysterion

Since we're already right in the middle of the nomination period for some of the major awards in the science fiction and fantasy field, we thought it might be helpful to provide a list of the eligible stories that we published here at Mysterion last year.

If you don't see one of your favorites, that means it's a reprint and probably not eligible for any of the 2020 awards.

These are all listed in order of publication, after first dividing them into short stories (< 7500 words) and novelettes (7500-17,500 words), according to the categorization system used by the Hugo and Nebula Awards. (If nominating for other awards that use a different system, it may be helpful to know that we don't currently publish anything longer than 9000 words.)

Short Stories

"The City Above The Shelf", Frederick Gero Heimbach
"Absence", Joanne Rixon
"The Book", S.E. Reid
"Meeting at the Crossroads", Joel Limmer
"The Mark", Forrest Brazeal
