Various Hugo-eligible works people might be interested in, for free or nearly free:

Future Visions [SHORT STORIES], available for Kindle for free. Lots of interesting hard SF short stories. I was wondering where all the hard SF was! Here is some, anyway. Some quite good stuff here — I'll probably end up nominating at least one of these stories, probably more. I'll try to post on this once I've finished them all.

Letters to Tiptree [RELATED WORK] is selling for Kindle for 99 cents until the end of the Hugo nomination period. I would have paid rather more than that for the Tiptree-LeGuin correspondence alone, which is wonderful and heartbreaking (although makes me feel a little voyeuristic). The "modern" letters vary widely in quality and appeal. The hilarious thing was that when the letters were written by people whose work I know, there was a 100% correspondence between whether I liked their work and whether I liked their letter. (I only guessed one, though — Nicola Griffin was pretty easy.) Anyway, it's definitely going on my Related Work list.

Citadel of Weeping Pearls (Aliette de Bodard) [NOVELLA] - [personal profile] forestofglory has informed me that she says on her website that she is happy to provide copies to those nominating for awards. I haven't read it yet (or even obtained it yet) but I really like her stuff, and let's face it, you have a novella slot left over, don't you? :)

Have you read the Tiptree biography? I don't remember. There's a lot about her relationship with LeGuin in there.

Thanks to for pointing me to Future Visons.

The best way to request Citadel of Weeping Pearls is probably to use to the contact page on her website at: http://aliettedebodard.com/contact/
