It’s that time of the year again: beginning of the Nebula voting period, and of the nominations for a number of things (Hugo, Nebulas, BFSA awards)… I haven’t started up my reading yet, but I soon will.
And here’s my 2010 list of published things (which doubles as achievements for the year):

Servant of the Underworld, Angry Robot, October 2010 (fantasy)
You can find a number of them online (I’ve linked where applicable). If I were to strongly push for something, it would be “The Jaguar House, in Shadow”, my Xuya-cum-Jaguar-Knights alternate history (eligible in the novelette category).
I also like the two Interzone short stories quite a bit, especially “The Shipmaker”, but at the moment they’re not eligible for the Nebulas by virtue of having had UK publication only (though insofar as I can tell, Hugos are fine).
I have also uploaded Servant of the Underworld, “The Jaguar House, in Shadow”, “As the Wheel Turns” and “Desaparecidos” up on the SFWA forums (since to-date, those four are the ones that have received Nebula nominations).
As usual, if you’re voting for any of those and want to read something in there, feel free to contact me.
