The Nebula Award ~ is one of the premiere awards for Science Fiction & Fantasy. The writings from the previous year are nominated by peers within the genre - the members of the SFWA – (Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America.) So it’s a bit like the Academy Awards for speculative writing – including short stories, novelettes, novellas and several other categories. Here is the list of the novels nominated for 2010.
The Native Star ~ by M.K. Hobson (Spectra)
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms ~ by N.K. Jemisin (Orbit)
Shades of Milk and Honey ~ by Mary Robinette Kowal (Tor)
Echo ~ by Jack McDevitt (Ace)
Who Fears Death ~ by Nnedi Okorafor (DAW)
Blackout/All Clear ~ by Connie Willis (Spectra)
I have read one short story from those nominated - ‘‘Ghosts of New York’’ ~ by Jennifer Pelland (Dark Faith) – links to Shellie’s mini review.
My vote for novel goes for Shades of Milk and Honey and it would be at the top of my list of books to read of those nominated. John’s vote or book that he would choose to read first is Blackout/All Clear. Isn’t interesting that the authors are mostly women!
Which have you read? Which do you want to read and/or which novel do you think will win?
