The Stars Continue to Shine with Latest Nomination

Fresh off the back of a Hugo win, Mary Robinette Kowal’s The Calculating Stars continues its relentless march across the speculative fiction award scene with a latest nomination for The Sidewise Awards.

The Sidewise Awards for Alternate History were conceived in late 1995 to honor the best alternate history genre publications of the year. The first awards were announced in summer 1996 and honored works from 1995. The award takes its name from Murray Leinster’s 1934 short story “Sidewise in Time”, in which a strange storm causes portions of Earth to swap places with their analogs from other timelines.

The Calculating Stars is nominated in the Long Form category, with an award for a Short Form work also to be presented.

The full list of nominees can be seen below:


Long Form

The Calculating Stars – Mary Robinette Kowal (Tor)
Summerland – Hannu Rajaniemi (Tor)
The Trial and Execution of the Traitor George Washington – Charles Rosenberg (Hanover Square)
Unholy Land – Lavie Tidhar (Tachyon)


Short Form

“The Secret City” – Rick Wilber (Asimov’s 9-10/18)
Codex Valtierra – Oscar (Xiu) Ramirez & Emmanuel Valtierra (self-published)
