Planetary Awards

Awards for Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing

2016 Winners

The 2016 results are in:

The winner for best short story is “Athan and the Priestess” by Schuyler Hernstrom.  The story is in the collection Thune’s Vision.


Mr. Hernstrom’s victory is not exactly shocking, as three of his short stories published in 2016 received nominations.


The winner for best novel is Swan Knight’s Son by John C Wright.



Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to all the bloggers who nominated and voted.  As a thank you, we’ll reblog some of their posts during the off-season.

As you read during 2017, be thinking about the next Planetary Awards!
