"Redshirts" has been nominated for this year's Seiun Award (the Japanese equivalent of a Hugo) in the International novel category. Also nominated: The Martian, Ready Player One, Among Others, The Dervish House and Pathfinder.
There's also some great stuff in the other categories as well - the now-complete Evangelion and Oh! My Goddess Manga are up for awards in that category and are definitely worth reading. If it wasn't for the fact that Eva Vol. 14 hadn't come out in the US this year instead of last year, I would have put it forward for nomination in the Hugos (I put up the equally good Gundam: The Origin - Battle of Loum instead).
