Sir Julius Vogel Awards 2015

It's SJV Awards nomination time again, and I have several eligible works. However, I'd like to focus on one work in particular, my short story "Gnome Day".

That link takes you to the full text of the story here on my website. The story is included in my collection Good Neighbours and Other Stories from HDWP Books, but the publisher has given permission for me to make it publicly available.

Update: Thanks to several people who nominated "Gnome Day". However, it didn't make the final ballot for this year, and an SJV nomination remains on my bucket list.

If you enjoy it and think it's good enough for an award, please nominate it by sending an email, with the information laid out as below, to sjv_awards@sffanz.org.nz. Make sure you include your contact details at the appropriate place.

Although this is a New Zealand award, anyone anywhere in the world can make a nomination. The more nominations a work gets, the more likely it is to end up on the final ballot, which is voted on by members of SFFANZ (Science Fiction and Fantasy Association of New Zealand). Full details here if you need them.
