This year, the finalists for Best Novella are:
- A Taste of Honey by Kai Ashante Wilson (Tor.com)
- Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire (Tor.com)
- Penric and the Shaman by Lois McMaster Bujold (Spectrum Literary Agency)
- The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe by Kij Johnson (Tor.com)
- The Ballad of Black Tom by Victor Lavalle (Tor.com)
- This Census-Taker by China Miéville (Del Rey)
Like the other short fiction categories, this is a generally strong group of finalists and it’s going to be a real challenge to put them in an order which feels correct (to me).
