Overview & Contest: Win The Nebula Awards Showcase 2011 anthology

One of the first things I did when I sold my first book was become a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA). Not only was it a cool thing to do, I thought, but I also get to vote on arguably the biggest awards given to science fiction and fantasy writers by other authors: the Nebulas.
I always enjoy the Nebula anthologies because they offer a chance to read what other writers consider the “best of the best” for the year. This new anthology, edited by author Kevin J. Anderson for Tor Books, offers some of the top books from the 2009 Nebulas (awarded in 2010), and features new introductions from the authors.
                                                                                                     Here’s what’s in the anthology:
SHORT STORY nominees by Saladin Ahmed, Michael A. Burstein, N.K. Jemison, James Patrick Kelly, Will McIntosh.
SHORT STORY winner “Spar” by Kij Johnson.
“Getting Dark” by SFWA Author Emeritus Neal Barrett Jr., and a tribute to Barrett by author Joe R. Lansdale.
NOVELETTE nominees by Paolo Bacigalupi, Michael Bishop, Richard Bowes, Ted Kosmatka, Rachel Swirsky.
NOVELETTE winner “Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast,” by Eugie Foster.
“A Tangled Web,” by SFWA Damon Knight Grand Master Joe Haldeman, with an appreciation of Haldeman by author Connie Willis.
NOVELLA winner “The Women of Nell Gwynne’s,” by Kage Baker.
Plus wrapups of other award winners.

  3. Please enter me in the drawing. I don’t read enough sci-fi, and an anthology would be a great overview of authors that I have not yet “met”.

    Thanks so much.

  4. I’ve never read much short fiction. I don’t know that they can create the “epic” feeling I like from what I read, but I’d love to be proven wrong! I’d especially love to read the story by N.K.Jemisin as The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is on my TBR pile. Wouldn’t mind a taste of her writing.
