On May 15th, the nominations for the next Ursa Major Awards were released, but I didn’t remember to check until I was sitting at a friend’s house eating dog-shaped cupcakes for his birthday. As soon as I got home, I checked the site out and saw Allasso had been nominated for the Best Magazine award. This is an honor for someone who has just barely entered that big world of publishing. In addition, Mary E. Lowd’s story “Fetching Asteroids” was nominated for the Best Short Fiction award.
The award is based off of voting by members of the fandom. Please, check their site out, and vote for what you think should win. There’s an amazing amount of talent in the fandom, and it’s a joy to celebrate these people’s accomplishments.
