I was very happy to see so many friends and works I love on the Hugo ballot. Since short stories are my thing, I looked up the nominees I hadn’t read in that category and discovered that all of the nominated stories are available online. They’re also all brilliant, so I kind of wish they could have an award each. Here you go, have some quality short fiction.
“The Water That Falls on You from Nowhere” by John Chu
“The Ink Readers of Doi Saket” by Thomas Olde Heuvelt
“Selkie Stories are for Losers” by Sofia Samatar
“If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love” by Rachel Swirsky
