We're coming up on award season in science fiction and fantasy -- nominations are open or opening for the Hugo Award, the Locus Award, the Nebula Award, and a host of others. John Scalzi has put up a post where writers, artists, editors, and other eligible creators can list their eligible work; Charlie Stross created one too. They're both fascinating reads in their own right.
Feel free to post your own eligible works to the comments below!

* My short story "By His Things Will You Know Him" was published in June 2013 on Boing Boing and in The Coming Age of Networked Matter.
