2009 Nebula Award Nominees


The 2009 Nebula Awards are coming up!  The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) nominate a handful of highly esteemed works every year since 1965, when Frank Herbert’s Dune won Best Novel.  Other novel category winners since then have included Flowers for Algernon, Rendezvous with Rama, The Forever War, Neuromancer, American Gods, and The Yiddish Policemen’s Union.

I, for one, am on the edge of my Command Seat / Throne (Delete as needed according to your persuasion as a Sci-Fi or Fantasy fan.) to see who wins come mid-May.  In the meantime, here are some links to this year’s nominees after the jump.

The Windup Girl

    This comment is for Patricia Cornwell: I just finished reading The Scarpetta Factor and it will be the last book I read by you. Your books have the words f…and f…ing too many time. It adds nothing to the story and is completely unnecessary to use profane language. If this is what it takes to sell your books I truly feel sorry for you. I do think you could sell books without that kind of language. Try it you may like it.
