Nebula Awards

The Nebula ballot was officially announced this morning, and I'm pleased to be on it for my novella about dwarfism, genetic engineering, empathy, and making movies: "Act One." I also discovered that the Nebulas have their own logo, which I did not realize:

I don't know who designed this, but it's handsome. The Nebulas are being held in Florida this year and since I will be in Seattle -- the farthest away possible unless I decide to live in Nome -- I don't think I'll be attending. Meanwhile, the Hugo balloting goes on, and Starship Sofa has asked me to remind all you nominators that podcasts are eligible in the "Media" category -- another thing I did not realize.

Here is the full Nebula ballot, and let the games begin:

Congratulations, Nancy!

Michael Capobianco commissioned it during his most recent term as President but I don't know who created the art.

Lou said...

Yes, I second the congratulations!

Well done.

Heck, if you're not going...I'M not going! *stamps foot*

I grew up in Florida...been there...etc.

Congrats and good luck on the Nebulous nomination, but it pains me that the noble emblem, attractive as it is, still does not picture a nebula!
