I’ve been meaning to post this for a month now, but keep forgetting. I’m chairing the extremely awesome 2007 Tiptree Award jury, with my fellow jurors being Geoff Ryman, Meghan McCarron, Charlie Anders, and Sheree Thomas. Anyway, I say this because we want you to submit recommendations for "SF and fantasy published this year exploring gender roles that should be considered for the award." The nomination form is here, or you can drop me an email (Gwenda007ATGMAILDOTCOM), with recs for novels and short stories that might fit the bill.
And, yes, for those of you less familiar with the award, this includes stuff published outside the genre, so long as it has a fantastical or SF bent. (The 2006 winners are Shelley Jackson and Catherynne M. Valente, for instance — Half-Life was published as literary fiction and The Orphan’s Tales as fantasy.) Oh, and yes, children’s and YA books are absolutely eligible for consideration, so kidlit bloggers pony up any relevant titles too.
Recommend early and often, por favor.
