The judges for the Sidewise Award for Alternate History read throughout the year. We recommend submitting works as early as possible to give the judges the most time to read everything. Anyone — including authors, publicists, and publishers — may submit or recommend works of alternate history for consideration. Alternate history is defined as "a point of divergence from the history of our world prior to the time at which the author is writing, a change that would alter history as it is known, and an examination of the ramifications of that change."
Submissions may be made with advanced reader copies, final press copies, or in e-book form. If submitting an e-book copy, please send non-DRM versions of the text in .epub, .mobi, and/or .pdf formats to award administrator Steven H Silver at firstname.lastname@example.org. He will circulate the e-books to all of the judges.
If submitting hardcopies, please send one copy to each of the judges at the addresses below.
