Hello everybody! I just thought I'd leave this here in case anyone was interested. I think there's a lot of overlap between here, WotF Forum, and Codex, but in case not, I'd hate for anyone to miss out. Even if you're not interested in this anthology, it's still important to be aware of your Campellian eligibility status.

If you made a pro or semi-pro sale in 2011 or 2012, you may be eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in 2013.

Who is eligible . . .

. . . Any work of fiction in the science fiction or fantasy genres (SF/F) sold for a nominal amount and published in a qualifying publication.

Which publications qualify?

Any publication meeting [u]one[/u] of the following criteria:

Copy print run of at least 10,000
Qualifying publication by SFWA (see the list)
Publications which have a nominal pay rate, particularly those designated by the award sponsor (Dell Magazines).
Nominal is a minimum of 3 cents per word and a total payment of at least $50 (USD).

If you're interested in promoting your qualifying story, consider Stupefying Stories's pre-reading anthology:

This is an official call for inclusion in Stupefying Stories presents the 2013 Campbellian Pre-Reading Anthology. Any individual whose first qualifying sale (at least 3¢/word, for a total of at least $50) was published in 2011 or 2012 is eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer via the 2013 Hugo ballot, and is accordingly invited to participate in this anthology. Please help us to spread the word!

Note: This is an unpaid, reprint-only anthology. It will be available as a free download, from February 1 through the end of April, 2013... by which point the Hugo and Campbell nominees should be announced. (If for some reason the announcement of nominees is delayed, the anthology will continue to be available until the actual ballot is public knowledge.)

. . .

We are seeking a one-time, non-exclusive right to reprint the material you supply, with a duration sufficient to ensure exposure for, and facilitate the fair evaluation of, as many eligible writers as choose to participate. Whatever you send though, please make sure that your reprint rights are unencumbered. We can only include stories for which you are allowed to assign these reprint rights.
