Science Fiction Awards Watch

We’ve received the following words regarding the Romanian Galileo Awards from Horia Nicola Ursu:

The subscribers of Romania’s only  printed F&SF magazine, Galileo Science Fiction & Fantasy, have started voting for their favourites in the competition for the 2012 Galileo Awards (established last year).

The voting will close on March 3, and the winners will be announced during the Final Frontier F&SF Bookfair, which will take place in Bucharest, March 17-18.

 

As best I can tell from my broken-Romanian estimates, it looks like a Steampunk anthology is getting a lot of nods….not to mention our letter write who is up for an editor’s award.

Good luck to all of our Romanian friends!
