Volume 7 of The Long List Anthology: More Stories From the Hugo Award Nomination List, edited by David Steffen, is looking for funding

There is a dedicated crowdfunding section in our weekly link round-ups, but we don't normally have individual posts for crowdfunding campaigns. This one is an exception, because Cora will have a story in this anthology, when funded.


About Volume 7 of The Long List Anthology:


The Hugo Awards are one of the most prominent awards in speculative fiction publishing.  Nominations are cast by the fans to decide the few stories that end up on the final ballot.  After the Hugo Award ceremony every year, WSFS publishes a longer list of nominated works, works that were loved by many fans who chose to use their votes on this story.  For many years I personally used this longer list of nominated works as a recommended reading list and always found some really great and memorable stories in there.  The purpose of this anthology is to get those stories to more readers by collecting them together in a book for easy perusal.  The anthology is a collection of eclectic tastes, rather than from the tastes of an individual editor, and so has a more varied flavor than a typical "Best Of" anthology.

By contributing to this campaign, you can help get these stories out to more readers and help the writers of the stories as they get a share of the royalties.

This project is not endorsed by nor affiliated with the Hugo awards, WSFS, WorldCon, or any associated entities. The Hugo name is used with permission. Please note that the anthology’s correct name is "The Long List Anthology", or the full wordy title: "The Long List Anthology: More Stories From the Hugo Award Nomination List." I note this because it’s commonly referred to, incorrectly, as “The Hugo Long List Anthology”; please use the correct title!
