Nebula Awards

Full list is here (SFWA) or here (Tor). 

The good news: Terry Pratchett at long last gets a nod, though the Andre Norton Award rather than a Nebula proper. Three out of five Nebula winners for written fiction are women. Rachel Swirsky, who turned 29 last month, is the first Hugo or Nebula winner to have been born in the 1980s, and the youngest winner since Ted Chiang (then 23) in 1990. Of the Short Story nominees, "Ponies" was the only one I had read and I found it brilliant but disturbing.

Less impressed by wins for "That Leviathan, Whom Thou Hast Made" by Eric James Stone, which was by far my least favourite of the Hugo-nominated novelettes; and I am groaning now at the prospect of reading Connie Willis's two-part epic, especially since most of the reviews I have seen by people whose opinions I normally respect have given it a massive thumbs-down. Oh well.
