Sidewise Award nominations have been announced. Except in a parallel universe, where they weren't.

The Sidewise Award nominations have been announced. The Sidewise Awards honor excellence in alternate history fiction. This year's awards will be presented at Interaction in Glasgow, Scotland.

This is the tenth year the Sidewise Awards have been presented. It also marks the second time there has only been one nominee in the Long Form category.

This doesn't indicate the nominee will win, as the judges may elect to present no award in the category. This also marks the first time a graphic novel sequence (Warren Ellis's Ministry of Space) has been nominated for the award. Nominee Chris Roberson won last year's short form award for his story "O One."

Short Form

"The Ashbazu Effect," by John McDaid
"Five Guys Named Moe," by Sean Klein
"The Gladiator's War: A Dialogue," by Lois Tilton
"The Heloise Archive," by L. Timmel Duchamp
Ministry of Space, by Warren Ellis
"Red Hands, Black Hands," by Chris Roberson

Long Form

The Plot Against America, by Philip Roth
