2013 Campbell Award Nominees

Location: Campbell Conference Awards Banquet at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas.

Comments: And here we are, in 2013, and the Campbell Award ballot is just as much of a pale sausage-fest as it ever was. Not a single woman was even nominated for the award. Not a single non-white author was nominated for the award. While the Hugo Awards, the Nebula Awards, and even the World Fantasy Awards have become more inclusive in their reach as time has gone by, the Campbell Award, if anything, has gotten worse in this regard.
