The winners have been announced in the 2015 Planetary Awards.

The winner for best short story was “Something in the Water” by C. S. Boyack. I wrote a little about the story when I nominated it, and I also reviewed the collection which contains the story.

I ‘ve read the winner for best novel, Torchship, but haven’t had time to write a review. There’s a brief review at Cirsova. The book has a following among fans of the television series Firefly, and I can see the similarities. Torchship is even structured like a TV series: broken into several sections which aren’t really separate enough to be standalone short stories, but aren’t tied together enough to be a single plot like you’d expect in a novel. If you don’t mind that structure, it’s an entertaining read, and I noticed it has just been released as an audiobook as well.
