We had a big post last year with suggestions for Hugo nominations that are [community profile] 50books_poc eligible. Nominations have opened up again- anybody have suggestions?

Among the novels I'm aware of, in absolutely random order as they occur to me:

Terminal Point by KM Ruiz
Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed
Fair Coin by E.C. Myers
Quantum Coin by E.C. Myers
The Killing Moon by N.K. Jemisin
The Shadowed Sun by N.K. Jemisin
Through the Valley of the Nest of Spiders by Samuel Delany
Wicked City by Alaya Dawn Johnson
Emperor Mollusk Versus The Sinister Brain by A. Lee Martinez

There must be more. Please recommend novels, novellas, short stories, related works, dramatic presentations, editors, graphic novels, etc...

The Hugo Awards are a major SFF award, distinctive for being fan-driven: fans nominate works for the award, and fans have the final vote on the award. "Fan" is defined as "anyone who springs $50 for a ChiCon 2012 supporting membership before January 31st". ([ profile] theferret summarizes why one might want to become a Hugo voter: a chance to boost the career of your favorite creators, and ebooks of the works on the final ballot.) Nominations for the Hugo ballot are currently open; nominations are due March 11.

Some have expressed interest in knowing what poc-created works and which poc SFF professionals and fans are eligible for nomination: this is the post! Rec and discuss your favorite works below (or, alternatively, just name poc-created works that are eligible, whether or not you are actively recommending them); I'll pull the recs up into the main post. And yes, go ahead and rec works or people for the non-book-related categories, if you wish. Just make sure that the people or creators that you are nominating are chromatic/non-white/people of color.

(And please feel free to signal-boost this around! Crowd-sourcing is good!)
