2022 Awards Eligibility

Some years feel harder than others and 2022 felt like a marathon. We’re so proud that we managed to put out each issue on time, even though behind the scenes we were working like muppets on fire. 

We published some outstanding pieces this year, worked with new and returning writers, and even published  stories in Spanish thanks to Sabrina Vourvoulias’ translation service. 

The stories listed below are eligible in either the short story categories of the SF/F awards. We are not yet members of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America so are unable to nominate ourselves. We’re always happy to send out our ebooks to any potential reviewers or nominators. Please read on and consider nominating these amazing pieces; we hope to see these authors in the winners circle soon!

Apparition Lit 17: Charm (January 2022) – Guest Editor, Lauren Ring
