Sturgeon Award finalists announced

Finalists have been announced for the 2012 Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award for best short science fiction story of the year, and at we’re delighted to see that Charlie Jane Anders’ brilliant story “Six Months, Three Days” made the list. “Six Months, Three Days” was a finalist for the Nebula Award and is on this year’s Hugo ballot as well, so this is its third major award nomination. Woo!

The Sturgeon is given out annually by the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, along with the John W. Campbell Memorial Award for best SF novel of the year. Finalists for this year’s Campbell Memorial Award are listed here.
