The Subjective Chaos Kind Of Awards 2019: Finalists

And so we come to the finalists for this year:

Best Fantasy Novel:

The Poppy War by RF Kuang

The Loosening Skin by Aliya Whiteley

In here there was one clear front runner and then a fight over the second slot. Will definitely be interesting to see what happens in the head to head

Best Science Fiction Novel:

I Still Dream by James Smythe

Rosewater by Tade Thompson

Space Opera by Catherynne M Valente

One round where a lot of different championing from the different judges with no clear front runner and every nominee getting at least one mention

Best Blurred Boundaries Novel:

The Mere Wife by Maria Dahvana Headley

The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas

Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse

As with science fiction this was a hotly contested round where there was even debate over whether we should have 3 nominees. But in the end we couldn’t leave  one of these three out

Best Novella:

The Tea Master and the Detective by Aliette de Bodard

Prime Meridian by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

These two were way ahead of the other nominees and it is going to be a tough battle with these facing off against each other

Best Series:

Machineries of War  by Yoon Ha Lee

Fractured Europe by Dave Hutchinson
