The short lists for this year’s Nebula Awards were announced yesterday while I was out and about in Bristol. You can find them here. As usual, I’m delighted to see so many of my friends getting a chance at glory. Special shout outs go to Aliette de Bodard and Tom Crosshill for flying the flag for the world outside North America. Also, of course, to Caitlín R. Kiernan. I’m delighted to see The Drowning Girl on the ballot.
I see that we have four Clarkesworld stories listed. That’s compared to three each from Asimov’s and Tor.com, and none for Analog. The world is changing.
