Award Eligibility list for 2022
All the stuff I've done this year
It’s always good to remind people (and by people, I mostly mean me) of the successes in any given year. It’s important to take stock. I often feel like I’m not working hard enough and, while it’s true I could always work harder, I don’t tend to slack off much, and posting stuff like this helps to keep the doubting brain weasels away. It’s also a good reminder for people looking to nominate work for awards or recommended reading lists to know what came out in any given year. So with that in mind, here’s my 2022 publication record:
THE FALL: Tales From The Gulp 2 (April 2022) – Eligible in Collection
All five stories in The Fall are original too, so they each qualify as Long Fiction (or Novella):
“Gulpepper Curios” (19,340 words)
“Cathedral Stack” (13,160 words)
“That Damn Woman” (18,230 words)
“Excursion Troop” (16,500 words)
“The Fall” (19,850 words)
SALLOW BEND (August 2022) – Eligible in Novel
DAMNATION GAMES (November 2022) – Eligible in Anthology (edited by me)
As for short fiction for 2022, that looks like this:
“Counting Tunnels To Berry” – The Hideous Book of Hidden Horrors anthology, ed. Doug Murano (Bad Hand Books, June 2022)
“The Fiends of Turner’s Creek” – SNAFU: Dead or Alive, ed. A J Spedding (Cohesion Press, October 2022)
“The Novak Roadhouse Massacre” – Found, ed. Andrew Cull and Gabino Iglesias (October 2022)
“The Question” – Damnation Games, ed. Alan Baxter (Clan Destine Press, November 2022)
Now that’s not too bad for a year. If you think any of it is worthy of an award nomination or a recommended reading list recommendation, thank you!
I’ve also got a new novel out on submission (wish me luck, please!) and I’m currently working the next novel.
That’ll do, eh? Yeah. That’ll do.
