The Nebula Awards Short Story Nominees

Short story news this time!

The nominees for The Nebula Awards (from the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America) have now been announced, and there are some great stories on the list. There are categories for novel, novella, novelette, short story, dramatic presentation, and young adult book.

It's great to see some fantastic short stories on the list, three of which I've read, and the other four I'll be checking out soon! Out of the three I've read, I can particularly recommend 'Immersion' by Aliette de Bodard, which is an extremely moving, thoughtful and well-written science fiction story, and 'Give Her Honey When You Hear Her Scream' by Maria Dahvana Headley, which is just gorgeous.

If you want to give them a read, they are all available to read for free at the links below:

Immersion, by Aliette de Bodard

Give Her Honey When You Hear Her Scream, by Maria Dahvana Headley

To all the authors, congratulations on the nomination and good luck at the awards!
