Voting in the 2014 Locus Reader Poll closes next week!
Anyone can vote–you don’t have to be a subscriber to Locus. Works from Locus‘s Recommended Reading List are listed in the poll, but you can also write-in anything you find worthy.
BCS had four stories make Locus‘s Recommended Reading List for 2013. Those stories are listed in the Reader Poll: “The Penitent” by M. Bennardo; “On the Origin of Song” by Naim Kabir; “Misbegotten” by Raphael Ordoñez; “Cherry Blossoms on the River of Souls” by Richard Parks.
You can also write-in other works, from BCS or any other magazine. Here are some of the best-reviewed BCS stories from 2013, and which category they fit in (short story, novelette, etc). One to consider writing-in is “Boat in Shadows, Crossing” by Tori Truslow, in the novelette category; it is a finalist for the British SF Association Awards.
BCS itself is also listed for Best Magazine or Fanzine.
The poll covers a lot more than just short fiction–also novels, first novels, artists, and more. Check out the poll listings and show your support for the authors and works that moved you in 2013.
The deadline is Apr. 15–Tuesday. So plan to cast your vote before then!
