It’s that time of year when certain readers start thinking about nominations for various SFF awards like the Hugos and Nebulas. Little Blue Marble hasn’t been around for long, and our slate of original fiction this year was quite small, but that’s no reason not to boost and celebrate our contributors.

Without further ado, here is our list of original fiction eligible in the short story categories for 2017 for your consideration. We’d love to know if you nominate any of your favourites!

“Preventative Maintenance”, by M. Darusha Wehm

“Easy”, by Liam Hogan

“Adiona Falters”, by William Delman
