Best of 2016 Award


We have had some wonderful stories over the past 10+ years. So, we have decided to give an award for the best 1632 Universe fiction published in the Grantville Gazette in 2016. If this goes well, we’ll do it again for 2017.

Here’s how we’ll do it. You read the stories (fiction only, please, for the award) and nominate the ones you think are especially award-worthy. You can nominate by posting to the Grantville Gazette Facebook page or by writing a comment after reading the story, or by emailing your nominations to Bjorn Hasseler at or to Walt Boyes at

Nominations are open from now until April 1st, 2017. After that, we’ll collate the nominations and publish them on the Gazette Facebook page. We’ll point you to a Survey Monkey ballot for the final vote.

We are looking forward to seeing what you think are the best stories we published in 2016.
