2006 Award-Nominated Short Fiction by Women

Thanks to calico_reaction for the encouragement. I'm doing this so that when people say "Well, what did women write worth mentioning in 2006 anyway?" there's something to point at.

I really do think it's in the short fiction area that the lack of female Hugo nominees this year is stunningly noticeable. Compiling this list I kept thinking "Wow, they didn't nominate that?" far more than I did with the novel list.

This is a list of short fiction nominated for the BSFA Award, the Nebula Award, the Crawford Award, and the Locus "recommended" list which has 20 nominees in each category. The Sturgeon Award hasn't listed nominees yet, and neither has the Locus Award actual shortlist. I'll try to update this. As the BSFA and the Tiptree don't split by length, I haven't even tried here.

Also, as the Locus list is by surname without first name, if I didn't recognise the name and/or know the gender it didn't make this list -- so if you know of any I missed, please tell me in comments and I'll add them.
