Nebula Award Winners

Novel: The Windup Girl – Paolo Bacigalupi (Night Shade Books, Sept. 2009)

Novella: The Women of Nell Gwynne’s – Kage Baker (Subterranean Press, June 2009)

Novelette:Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast,” Eugie Foster (Interzone, Feb. 2009)

Short Story:Spar,” Kij Johnson (Clarkesworld, Oct. 2009)

Ray Bradbury Award: District 9, Neill Blomkamp and Terri Tatchell (Tri-Star, Aug. 2009)

Andre Norton Award: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, Catherynne M. Valente (Catherynne M. Valente, June 2009)

The ballot is here; I pretty much failed to call any of the winners, although despite still feeling a bit sulky that District 9 beat Moon, I think this is a pretty good set. Interesting that they’re all first-time winners, and none are from “big” publishers or magazines. All of the winners are on the Hugo ballot (except Fairyland, but Valente’s in Best Novel with Palimpsest; I think “Spar” is the only one likely to do a double, however.

  1. I’d say that Johnson was a lock for the Short Fiction Hugo.

    People cheered when they made the announcement.

    I think that The Windup Girl is a better choice than The City & The City but it’s very definitely a first novel in that it displays more potentiality than actuality. If He can bring the same focus to his novels as he had in his short stories then he can go on to be one of the greats I think… But Windup Girl is not a great novel.
