The Locus Awards is the only major F&SF award where you don’t have to meet a particular criteria to be able to vote, unlike the Nebula Award, where you have to be a member of SFWA or the Hugo, where you must be a Worldcon member (though if you’re a Locus subscriber, your vote counts twice where everyone else has one).
So I urge you to take the time to vote, which you can do here on the Locus website:
One story I hope you’ll consider voting for is Mike Alexander and K.C. Ball’s “The Moon Belongs to Everyone,” which appeared in Analog in December, 2012. Mike passed around the same time the story came out, and it’s a fine story that I would also like to see on there for sentimental reasons.
(And of course if you wanted to write anything in, Near+Far is eligible for the collection category and “Five Ways to Fall in Love on Planet Porcelain” for the short story one. The publisher is Hydra House.)
I’m looking forward to the awards. They’re always a nice way to start off the summer season.
