This year's Nebula award nominees announced

Official announcement at SFWA.

Awards are in multiple categories, & for works published in the US during 1.5 years ending December 2009. I'll might have separate posts on short fiction categories later in the day.

This appears to be a more interesting list than last year in that there are relatively few entries from 2008 (except in novelette category) - last year was pretty much everything from 2007 rather than 2008!

While I've read a few stories from the list, I can name two good ones here - but both from 2008! Ted Kosmatka's "Divining Light", & Carolyn Ives Gilman's "Arkfall" (read online). Lists also include at least one story I gave up within the first 15%.

In short fiction & young adult categories, the official announcement includes some links to online copies too.
