Natural Selection is eligible for an Aurora Award.
Described by Canadian editor and author Steve Stanton as a "fine showcase of gritty and powerful short fiction" in which "the author envisions a bleak future of warfare and scarcity as she entertains some interesting ideas from the fringe of science."

Nominations are open until April 12th for any Canadian wishing to celebrate excellence in Canadian science fiction and fantasy literature.
