We’re doing something a little different this month! Instead of a single book, our book club picks for January are the five short stories nominated for the 2022 Hugo Award.
We’re a little late getting the information about this book club out, so we figured a shorter assignment was only fair – plus, these stories are all AMAZING and thought provoking and strange and wonderful. We can’t wait to talk about each of them with you (and, of course, taking a vote on which story you think should have won!)
The five short story nominees for 2022 were:
“Where Oaken Hearts Do Gather” by Sarah Pinsker (Uncanny Magazine, Mar/Apr 2021)
“Mr. Death” by Alix E. Harrow (Apex Magazine, Feb 2021)
“Proof by Induction” by José Pablo Iriarte (Uncanny Magazine, May/Jun 2021)
“The Sin of America” by Catherynne M. Valente (Uncanny Magazine, Mar/Apr 2021)
“Tangles” by Seanan McGuire (Magicthegathering.com: Magic Story, Sep 2021)
“Unknown Number” by Blue Neustifter (Twitter, Jul 2021)

In case you’re not familiar with them, the Hugo Awards are annual awards for the best science fiction/fantasy works and achievements of the previous year. They are given at the World Science Fiction Convention and chosen by the World Science Fiction Society members. They’re kinda a big deal!
Our meeting will take place on January 26th at 7PM ET. Can’t make it live? The replay will be available right after the meeting takes place.
