Nebula Awards

Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, Catherynne M. Valente

The Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation
District 9

Best Short Story
“Spar,” Kij Johnson

Best Novelette
“Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast,” Eugie Foster

Best Novella
The Women of Nell Gwynne’s, Kage Baker

Best Novel
The Windup Girl, Paolo Bacigalupi

Yay for eugie!

Notes for my statistics: four first-time winners out of four in the written fiction categories (and none had ever won a Hugo either); three women out of four; none born in the 1942-51 period (Baker 1952, Johnson 1960, Foster 1971, Bacigalupi 1972); I think that Baker may be the first writer to win a Nebula posthumously?

Thanks for this and for the link to your other analysis; I've linked both from my Genreville post on the awards.

It's also Cat Valente's first Norton Award--first time nominated, in fact--and she is likewise not a Hugo winner.

Thanks, Rose! I have some more numbercrunching here which also needs to be updated.

http://blogs.publishersweekly.com/blogs/genreville/?p=355 (in lieu of proper trackbacks, since LJ will apparently never implement those). Sadly, the K-Mac link from your stats pages appears to no longer work.

I'm so sad about Kage but pleased for her win. I've got a copy of the book; time to read it now.
