British Fantasy Award Shortlist 2020!

The British Fantasy Society shortlist has been announced, revealing that both PseudoPod and PodCastle have both been nominated under the Best Audio category! We are honored to share a list with a number of truly stunning artists, not just on the audio shortlist, but the entire list of British Fantasy Award nominees.

Now, please note that we are Dream Warriors hoping this will be the Season of the Witch. Or maybe our Ragnarok. Third time’s the charm!

Also, our gHostus Mostus Alasdair’s weekly pop culture newsletter, The Full Lid, has gotten a nonfiction nomination!

Please join us in congratulating our hardworking editorial teams on this awesome recognition.

The British Fantasy Awards are typically presented each year at Fantasycon, which (under normal circumstances) takes place in Glasgow, Scotland in October.

Anthologies and Collections and PseudoPod and You!

There are a number of short stories in anthologies and collections that deserve to get in front of more readers. We want to shine more light across our community and widen our circle to make room for more writers and readers.
